Labor and Delivery and COVID-19

During Your Delivery and Hospital Stay

When you come to the hospital for delivery, you will be tested for COVID-19 even if you have no symptoms. This is for the safety of you and your newborn.

University Hospitals’ leadership has carefully planned for a safe delivery for you and your baby whether you test positive for COVID-19 or not.

You and your support person/visitors should wear a mask during your hospital stay. This is most important when you are outside your hospital room or health care workers are present.


We believe in patient- and family-centered care and fully understand that patients benefit from family and friends visiting them in the hospital. To help protect everyone during the COVID-19 outbreak we are managing our visitor policies in accordance with Ohio’s Public Health Advisory System.

We have different levels of restrictions based on how severe the current level of spread is in the area; these restrictions are updated here.

Doulas with official identification do not count as a visitor. One doula per patient is permitted and can be present for patients in labor through delivery.
