Temporary Visitation Guidelines

**Effective 03/1/2022**

At Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, we are taking extra precautions to provide the safest environment possible for our patients, visitors and staff. Please be aware of the following temporary changes to our guidelines before visiting Rutgers Cancer Institute locations.

  • Adult patients may bring one visitor over the age of 18.
  • Pediatric patients may be accompanied by two parents/guardians for initial patient visits only (no siblings). Pediatric patients must be accompanied by one parent or guardian only (no siblings) for all follow-up visits.
  • Pediatric patients are asked to go directly to the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology clinic on the second floor for blood work and to register – not on the first floor as usually done.
  • No visitors 18 years of age and under will be permitted.
  • All visitors and adult/pediatric patients are required to wear a non-cloth mask regardless of vaccination status. NOTE: face masks with valves (N95 type) will NOT be permitted for visitors, per CDC guidelines.
  • Visitors are not permitted to remove masks in waiting areas and/or infusion units. Visitors are not permitted to eat or drink in these areas.
  • Infusion units and waiting areas will be monitored for crowding and capacity. Visitors may be asked to wait in other areas if capacity limits are reached that do not comply with social distancing.

Please note there are also visiting restrictions in place at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) New Brunswick that may impact visitors to Rutgers Cancer Institute.
