RMHC Maryland is currently operating with the following protocols as of 4.26.23

UPDATED 4/26/2023

RMHC Maryland provides housing for families of ill or injured children in a communal living setting. It is critical to maintain a safe and sanitary environment in order to protect the health of families, employees, volunteers, visitors, or others in the event of community spread of COVID-19 in Baltimore City and the State of Maryland.

Efforts will be guided by, and in accordance with, all applicable federal, state and local laws as well as guidelines issued by public health authorities and our hospital partners.

Current Admission Policy:

We are accepting guests who are not vaccinated.  Masking is optional.   

Volunteer groups are back serving breakfast, dinner, and providing activity hour for our families.

Volunteers, hospital personnel (therapist, nurses, etc.), and invited visitors are not required to be vaccinated or to wear a mask.

Here are the things that you need to know.

  • Our priority system will still apply (1st priority oncology, 2nd priority families with a child in the PICU, NICU, Shock Trauma or awaiting a transplant. All other families are priority 3).
  • Families will now be allowed to return/visit home or a job and then come back to the House.
  • Families will be able to switch on and off with other family members, if those family members are listed on the referral.


There are currently no travel restrictions.

Cleaning and Disinfection

  • RMHC Maryland continues to have increased cleaning and disinfection using hospital-grade products with a specific focus on high touch surfaces to include common areas, bathroom fixtures, doorknobs, rails/handles, elevator buttons, and keyboards.
