UPDATED VISITOR GUIDELINES
Updated Nov. 8, 2021
In alignment with the most recent health order from the California Department of Public Health, COVID-19 vaccination verification or negative COVID test (within 72 hours of visit) and a valid ID is required for visitation.
For the safety of our patients, families, and staff, visitors must:
- Be limited to one visitor at a time 1 hour per person per day for medical-surgical, telemetry, and 15 minutes per visitor for ICU.
- Present proof of vaccination or negative COVID test within 72 hours of visitation and a valid ID to visit inpatients.
- Be in good health and undergo symptom screening when entering the building.
- Wear a medical mask at all times when in the building and the patient room.
- Maintain 6 feet of physical distance from others in all areas.
- Stay in the patient’s room while on the unit.
- Visitors are not permitted to eat in the patient’s room or lobby because this would require unmasking.
Any visitors who are unwilling or unable to follow these guidelines will be asked to leave the premises. Restrictions do not apply to end-of-life care.
Visitation Hours: 8 a.m.–8 p.m.
To reach a social worker to schedule a visit, call (323) 267-0477.
