Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Shriners Children's Twin Cities has taken action to prevent the spread of illness.

We must limit the number of visitors to 1-2 adults. Masks must be worn by all visitors above the age of 2, at all times, while in our building.

Shriners Children's does not test for coronavirus, or COVID-19. If you or your child are ill or symptomatic with fever, cough or difficulty breathing, it is important that you contact your regular primary care doctor for testing and treatment of these symptoms.

Please contact our scheduling staff at 612-596-6106 to reschedule your Shriners Children's appointment if your child or person accompanying your child has:

  • Traveled outside of the country in the last 14 days
  • Had contact with someone under investigation for coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • Symptoms such as cough, fever or shortness of breath

Everyone who enters our building is asked about the above risk factors before being allowed inside. If your child or accompanying person(s) have symptoms of a contagious condition upon arrival at the clinic, we most likely will not be able to provide service in the interest of not exposing the other patients and families to illness.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

For questions, please contact Drew Graul, corporate administrator, at 813-539-0730 or via email.
