Latest Updates on COVID-19 Testing

Most of the time, you can use an easy and reliable no-cost home antigen test for your COVID-19 testing needs.

PCR tests are used when directed by your doctor or when you’re required to show a negative PCR test for international travel or in circumstances where self-tests are not an option, such as to prove a negative COVID-19 test. Please check testing requirements prior to choosing a testing option.

You can now get a rapid PCR test with results in 24 hours or less at our convenient Northern California Kaiser Permanente testing locations. To get your test, start with an E-visit.

Visitor Policy and COVID-19 Information

We have updated the visitation guidance for hospital and ambulatory settings based on the most recent public health order by the CDPH to include the key changes below:

Hospitals and clinics may now allow all patients to have visitors without restriction.

Visitors are no longer required to show proof of vaccination or of negative COVID-19 test result to visit their family or friends in the hospital.

Effective April 3, 2023, per updated guidance from the California Department of Public Health, masks are no longer required at Kaiser Permanente facilities, except where mandated by governmental and regulatory agencies or our local infection prevention experts. Patients and visitors should check themselves for common COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering our facilities and can continue to request and voluntarily use masks as a recommended tool to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory-like illnesses.
