COVID-19 Information and Visitor Policy for Kaiser Permanente in Northern California

As part of our commitment to protect our patients and staff, and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have implemented the following in our facilities:


Anyone entering our facilities must wear a mask over their nose and mouth, regardless of vaccination status.

Temperature Screening

Anyone entering our hospital and surgical settings in our facilities will encounter temperature checkpoints. If you are found to have an elevated temperature you will be provided further instruction.

Potential visitors should stay home if they feel sick. Those entering our medical office buildings or other clinic locations will be prompted to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms and provided direction if they have symptoms.

Visitor Policy

Visitor restrictions are in effect for all our facilities and correspond directly to the CDC-published COVID-19 transmission rates in the county that our hospitals are located and are based on 3 levels of transmission rates: substantial, high, or low.

Per a health order from the state of California, hospital or skilled nursing facility visitors must provide proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours in order to enter these facilities to visit/accompany a patient. This is not applicable to those visiting lab, pharmacy or radiology, or those visiting critical condition and imminently dying patients. Limited exceptions for essential support persons.
