If you, or someone in your household, have been to China within the past 14 days and have a fever or respiratory symptoms such as a cough or shortness of breath please contact your primary healthcare provider for further guidance. If you have an upcoming appointment at Joslin please call 617-309-2440 to reschedule your appointment. 


In an effort to prevent the spread of viruses such as flu, norovirus and Novel Coronavirus, we remind patients, staff and visitors to please follow basic precautions to prevent illness:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer available throughout Joslin.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your arm when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth because germs spread this way.
  • If you are sick with flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, body ache, etc.), please call us 617-309-2440 to reschedule your appointment.
