Need a COVID-19 Test?

Planning Your Visit

Across BJC, we’ve taken many steps to protect you during your visit, and our hospitals and doctors’ offices are taking all recommended COVID-19 safety precautions.

While things may continue to look a little different for a while, we pledge to continue providing the same high level of compassionate care that you and your family have come to expect from us.

BJC Visitor Policy

To ensure the safety of our patients, visitors and staff, BJC HealthCare has a limited visitor policy in place. These restrictions are not related to local community stay-home ordinances. BJC hospitals and health service organizations are limiting visitors due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the community, which is expected to continue over the coming months. Our restrictions are designed to protect patients, their families, and our staff and providers by further limiting the risk of exposure.

Keeping You Safe at the BJC Laboratories

To reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure for patients, visitors and staff, BJC HealthCare laboratories have established a variety of services to offer safe alternatives for at-risk and immunocompromised patients. Please see below for details.

Physician orders are required for all lab services. If your physician office has not sent them electronically or via fax, please be sure to bring paper orders with you. Some form of identification will be required.

Before you visit, please review the safety measures you can expect at BJC hospitals.

Managing COVID-19 With In-Home Monitoring

Managing COVID-19 With In-Home Monitoring

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has presented many challenges for managing patient care. To meet one of those challenges, BJC Medical Group and Washington University School of Medicine collaborated to create an in-home monitoring program for those sick with COVID-19. The program is helping patients to recover at home, while keeping health care providers as safe as possible.

Coronavirus Testing For Surgical and Procedure Patients

As an increased safety measure, some patients scheduled for surgery or other procedures at BJC HealthCare facilities might need to be tested for coronavirus (COVID-19).

Emergency Department: Visitor Information

After careful consideration and with guidance from the CDC and national medical authorities, we’ve made the difficult decision to allow only one visitor per patient for the safety of the patients we serve, and our caregivers.

Don’t let fear delay your care

For many, the fear of catching COVID-19 is keeping them from wellness check-ups and preventive care. Learn how BJC is taking important precautions to keep you healthy and safe.

How to Wear a Mask — for Patients and Visitors

COVID-19 is a virus that mainly spreads by respiratory droplets when a person with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes. To prevent spreading the virus: cover coughs and sneezes, clean your hands, stay at least 6 feet away from others, and wear a face covering or face mask when in public and at any BJC facility.
