Keeping families together and safe during this pandemic.

Our staff is working hard to keep our guests and staff safe with many new precautions in place. Among some of the precautions are:

  • Masks are required at all times when not in private guest rooms (Masks and hand sanitizer are provided to each family)
  • Volunteers and staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COIVD-19
  • Meal groups of up to 4 are allowed at the Ronald McDonald House to prepare meals for our families
  • Playroom is open to be signed out by one family at a time during office hours 
  • Common areas are open and available
  • Van runs are available upon request (following the posted schedule) 
  • Extra cleaning and disinfection protocols in place including sanitizing between each family use of common areas. 
  • Vaccination status will be confirmed upon family check-in.
  • Families with unvaccinated individuals will have travel limitations.

We continue to work with the Johnson County Department of Public Health, our hospital partners, and our RMHC Global community to ensure we are practicing the most up to date and effective precautions possible. We appreciate the community support we receive through financial and in-kind donations including catered meals, wish list items, and thoughtful encouragement for our guests.

If you have additional questions regarding COVID-19 vaccination status, please contact the Ronald McDonald House at (319) 356-3939
