Visitor Guidelines


Outpatient Clinic Facilities


Updated: Aug. 26, 2022

Based on community levels of COVID-19, Baylor Medicine no longer requires masks while in our clinics.  Patients may choose to wear a mask, or request that staff or physicians wear a mask while in the exam room.

Masks are still required for patients and visitors going to Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center hospital or clinic, including the Dan L Duncan Cancer Center.

Patients and visitors with a cough or other respiratory illness, or who have COVID-19 disease, must wear a mask.  If you have COVID-19 disease or symptoms on the day of your visit, please alert the front desk upon your arrival.

For all visitors to Baylor Medicine outpatient clinic facilities, we ask that visitors adhere to the following:

  1. It is the parent’s responsibility to be able to appropriately supervise a minor if they are present during a visit. Minors requiring supervision must have another adult present to stay with the child in the waiting room if the visit requires privacy or a procedure is being performed.  
  2. When you arrive to your appointment, and have successfully completed ePreCheckin, please let our front desk staff know that you have arrived to fully complete the check-in process.
  3. If patients are not feeling well, they should notify the front desk upon arrival to the clinic.
  4. If visitors are not feeling well, they should not come to the appointment in person. They can ask to join the appointment by phone.

For In-Patient/Hospital Visitors

Patients and visitors should plan ahead. Please review the CHI St. Luke’s visitor policy for more information for in-patient/hospital visitors.
