Visiting Hours

COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS & VISITORS

Visitor Restrictions Due to COVID-19

Patient safety is our highest priority. With the dramatic increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations and positive cases, the state of California is requiring additional measures to keep patients safe.

Starting August 11, 2021, hospital visitors must show one of the following:

Proof that a COVID-19 vaccine series was completed at least 14 days before the visit

OR

A negative result of a COVID-19 test within 72 hours

Additional visiting restrictions for patient safety include:

  • Each patient is allowed one visitor at a time, with some limited exemptions.
  • Visitors must wear a face covering or mask.
  • Visits are restricted to patient’s room or other designated area in the facility.
  • All patients being admitted to an inpatient area will be tested for COVID-19. Visitors are not allowed in patient care areas until a negative result has been received for the patient.

Video visits through applications such as Zoom and FaceTime are highly recommended. Our staff can help you set one up.

Visitor exemptions include:

  • Visits to patients who are at the end of their life.
  • One support person for patients who are a dependent adult or child, where the consistent presence of the visitor is necessary to reduce the risk of medical or clinical harm.
  • Unique situations in which the visiting needs should be discussed with the on-site nursing director.
  • Clergy members will be allowed to visit, but arrangements must be made with the hospital chaplain.
