Your Cancer Care During COVID-19
As a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, City of Hope is a leader in treatment, research and outreach and has the highest standards for infection prevention and control. For patients with upcoming appointments at City of Hope:
- If you have been exposed to COVID-19, have symptoms or are waiting for test results, out of respect for the health of other patients and our care team, please do not come to your appointment in person. Virtual appointments are an option.
- Please do not come to the Evaluation & Treatment Center (ETC) for COVID-19 testing unless specifically directed to do so by your physician or if you are experiencing acute shortness of breath or another medical emergency.
- All patients must continue to be required to wear masks at all times inside City of Hope clinical buildings and outside the entrance of City of Hope Helford Research Hospital.
Your health is our highest priority, which is why we urge you to maintain your treatments and appointments during this difficult time.
