All Dana-Farber patients can bring up to two healthy adult companions (age 18 or older) to an outpatient appointment at Dana-Farber.
Please do not bring children or young teens as companions to your Dana-Farber appointment. Visitors age 17 and younger, including siblings, are not permitted at this time. We thank you for your understanding.
All companions and patients need to use our prescreen app. On the day of an appointment, go to prescreen.massgeneralbrigham.org on your smartphone and answer the app's screening questions to get a digital pass we’ll ask to see when you enter Dana-Farber. If you do not have a smartphone or can’t access the app, we will help you complete the screening process when you arrive.
Everyone is required to wear a face mask throughout their visit, regardless of vaccination status. We'll give you a mask when you arrive. Make sure that it always covers your mouth and nose.
Please be mindful of others during your visit, and try to maintain safe physical distancing. If there is not enough space for needed physical distancing in a patient care area, a companion may be asked to wait in a designated area until
the patient's appointment is complete.
Be Aware of Your Arrival Time
If you're visiting Dana-Farber in person, please do not arrive more than 20 minutes before your appointment. This helps reduce the number of people in the building and ensures safe physical distancing throughout the facility. If you arrive
too early, we may need to direct you to a waiting area after you complete the screening process.
