TO: Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center Patients

Please note that no visitors are permitted in outpatient settings.

COVID-19 is still a very real threat.

Mass General is following Massachusetts state guidelines that restrict visitors in outpatient settings.

Why? It’s the right thing to do.

There isn’t enough space to safely distance with visitors. The added risk of COVID-19 exposure is high, as we have seen in other parts of the country that have struggled with re-opening.

We understand that this is difficult, but the pandemic is still a real issue. Our approach, in line with the state’s, is about being smart, cautious, and careful.

Mass General wants to keep you and your family safe.

Regards,

Mass General Cancer Center
