Visiting Hours & Guidelines

To benefit the emotional health and healing of our patients, we encourage family and friends to visit their loved ones while in our care. Visiting hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

Effective March 14, 2022, two visitors at a time are allowed for most patients.

All visitors must:

  • Provide proof of being fully vaccinated 14 or more days ago OR a negative COVID-19 test.*
  • Be screened for COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Check in at the nurses station before proceeding to the patient's room.
  • Wear a sticker, which must remain visible at all times while in the facility.
  • Be 18 years of age or older.
  • Wear a mask at ALL times while in the facility - those who fail to wear a mask will be escorted from the facility.
  • Stay in the patient's room or other area as designated by the care providers. Visitors are not allowed in the cafeteria, waiting rooms, or any areas except the patient's room.
  • Acknowledge and accept any risks associated with entering a location where patients diagnosed with COVID-19 may be receiving care.

All visitation is at the discretion of the care team and may be restricted at any time.

* As required by the California Department of Public Health, all hospital visitors must provide proof of being fully vaccinated 14 or more days before their visit OR a negative COVID-19 test.

Fully vaccinated visitors must show proof of vaccination:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card (issued by the Department of Health and Human Services Center for Disease Control & Prevention or WHO Yellow Card), which includes name of person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, and date of last dose administered
  • Photo of a Vaccination Record Card as a separate document
  • Photo of a Vaccination Record Card stored on a phone or electronic device
  • Documentation of COVID-19 vaccination from a healthcare provider
  • Digital record that includes a QR code that when scanned by a SMART Health Card reader displays to the reader client name, date of birth, vaccine dates and type

Unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated visitors must show proof of a negative test:

  • Negative antigen test: within one (1) day of visitation
  • Negative PCR test: within two (2) days of visitation

With history of COVID within the prior 90 days, visitors may provide documentation of recovery and release from isolation in lieu of testing. An FDA-approved or EUA-authorized over-the-counter test (at-home test) is acceptable, but it must be conducted and observed on-site. For multiple consecutive visitations, visitors are required to provide proof of a negative test every third day (e.g.: testing is required on day one, day 4 and day 7, and so on).

Exceptions to the testing and vaccination requirement may be made for visitors to patients in the Emergency Department, pediatric patients, maternity patients and comfort care patients.
