New Visitor Policy

Kaiser Permanente visitation policies are based on the state’s colored-tier system for COVID-19 activity for each county and are subject to change if a county tier status shifts.

Please do not visit or accompany patients if you have a cough or cold or are sick. All visitors must wear a proper face mask at all times and maintain at least six feet of distance from other visitors and patients while on our campus.

Any visitor who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 30 days or showing any COVID-19 symptoms will not be permitted entrance.

VISITOR POLICY 

Sacramento Medical Center

Effective Nov. 10, visitors remain prohibited in the hospital except as outlined in the visitation guidelines for these specific groups:

  • Hospice/end of life: One visitor at a time or by special arrangement in any setting.
  • Patients with physical, intellectual, and/or developmental disabilities and patients with cognitive impairments: One visitor at a time in any setting.
  • The visitation policy for our outpatient clinic settings remains the same, with one support person allowed to accompany any pediatric patient or adult patient with physical, intellectual, and/or developmental disabilities and patients with cognitive impairments or language needs. This applies to all our outpatient clinics including our Davis Medical Offices in Yolo County which is at the “substantial” category.
  • These changes do not apply to hospitalized COVID-19 patients, who will continue to have tighter visitor restrictions.

Visitor Guidelines

  • Screening of visitors will be conducted at entrances.
  • Any visitors with fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, or other COVID-19 symptoms, or confirmed COVID-19 will not be allowed entry.
  • Any visitors must wear a mask, social distance, follow safety precautions, and limit movement while in the facility.
  • If not accompanying the patient in the exam room, support persons will wait for the patient outside the clinic.

 

Policies are in accordance with California Department of Public Health guidelines.
