BCH COVID-19 Update

Universal Masking

BCH employees who are up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccine series (received the first series as well as a COVID-19 vaccine booster) may congregate without facemasks in non-patient facing areas (e.g., staff conference rooms). All staff must wear a mask in all patient facing areas and communal areas (hallways or other areas, such as lobbies, where vaccination status is unknown).

· If staff are to be unmasked in approved areas, please discuss masking as a group prior to removing your mask. Be considerate of others who may not feel comfortable removing masks at this time.

· Staff who are up-to-date on their vaccine series may eat or drink without physical distancing.

· Staff who are not up-to-date on their vaccine series must remain six feet apart from others while eating or drinking.

· Staff should have conversations with their peers asking if they are comfortable doing so prior to taking off their masks. Staff who are not up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccine series must continue to wear their mask.

Offsite BCH Foundation/Sponsored Events

Masking is no longer required at offsite BCH sponsored events. Offsite events must follow the guidelines of the venue and the community in which the event is located. If attendees are up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccine series, they may be unmasked and are able to eat and drink without physical distancing. Attendees that are not up-to-date on their vaccination series need to remain masked and to remain 6 feet away from other people while eating or drinking.

Beginning Monday, April 11th, the following changes will be implemented:

· Visitor Policy

o Two visitors of any age will be permitted to visit per patient.

· Observers, Shadowers, and Vendors

o Observers, shadowers, and non-essential vendors will be permitted onsite and must follow all current COVID-19 BCH guidance.



Two Years Later

Boston Children’s Two Years Later: Share Your Story

On March 13, 2020, the lives of every member of our Boston Children’s Hospital team were changed in ways we couldn’t possibly have anticipated when we got up that morning. Now, as we approach the second anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to hear about — and see — the last two years, from YOU.

We’ve opened up the Culture Works channel on Scope360, so anyone can post to it. If you feel comfortable, we encourage you to share your story with us by posting in a number of ways, or sharing in the Comments below.

  • What was your most memorable moment in the last two years?

  • A significant lesson learned?

  • A few words of remembrance for someone you lost during the pandemic?

  • Celebrations of new births, new family members (both the human and pet variety)?

  • Look through your phone…is there a picture that perfectly sums up the last two years for you?

  • Your hopes for the future?

Share your stories, your hopes, your victories, your losses. Please try to keep it under 200 words, but also feel free to post more than once. We’ve been through so much over the last two years, both together and apart, and everyone’s story is worth telling.
