Visitor Policy and COVID-19 Information
As part of our commitment to protect our patients and staff, and to prevent the spread of infectious diseases affecting our communities (including COVID-19 and monkeypox), we have implemented the following in our facilities:
Anyone entering our facilities must continue to wear a well-fitted mask, that covers their nose, mouth and chin, regardless of vaccination status. You may receive a recommendation to wear a KP supplied mask upon entry to facility to improve safety. Please adhere to all self-symptom screening required for entry to our facilities as posted at entry points.
Our hospital visitor restrictions correspond directly to the CDPH-published COVID-19 transmission rates in the county that our hospitals are located and are based on 4 levels of transmission rates: high, substantial, moderate, or low.
