Ladies, a wonderful tradition is back in 2022 – the annual Kaiser Permanente Women’s Fitness Festival! After a long two years of virtual events and gatherings, it’s time to invite your moms, daughters, sisters, and friends for a live, and in-person event to celebrate each other (COVID-19 pandemic permitting, of course)!
The event is held at the State Capitol and benefits WEAVE, the region’s primary provider of crisis intervention services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
This is Sacramento’s premier all-female run/walk celebration of health and friendship. You and your daughters, sisters, moms, and girlfriends can participate in the 10K run or 5K run/walk events.
The KP Thrive Pavilion will offer blood pressure screenings, body fat testing, and many other activities. When you finish your run/walk, you’ll be rewarded with:
- One-of-a-kind 10K and 5K finisher medals
- A stunning designer race tee
- Princess Tiaras for the 1/2 mile finishers (12 and under)
- Farmer’s Market style post-run breakfast
- Women’s boutique with the latest in running/walking gear
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 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.
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 PCR test result which has been taken within 48 hours before entry or a negative COVID-19 antigen test result which has been taken within 24 hours before entry. This is not applicable to those entering the facility to access the lab, pharmacy, or radiology.
Visitor restrictions are in effect for all our inpatient and outpatient facilities.
Use a COVID-19 home antigen test at the first sign of symptoms. Visit kp.org/covidtests to learn how you can get a test at no cost.
Please don’t go to urgent care or the emergency department for COVID-19 testing — only members who need immediate care should go to those locations.
Protect yourself and your loved ones by getting a no-cost flu shot. For your safety and convenience, flu vaccinations are available for adults and children, 6 months and older. Many locations also offer the COVID-19 vaccine and booster. Please get vaccinated; it’s your best defense against serious health risks this season, and now more than ever, it’s important to stay safe and stop the spread. Flu shot dates and locations are subject to change. Before you go, visit kp.org/mydoctor/flu or call 1-800-573-5811 for the most up-to-date information and answers to frequently asked questions. We’re excited to offer even more ways for members to get vaccinated! Starting October 1st through March 31st, 2022, you can get a flu shot at no additional cost from select retailers, including Albertsons, Costco, CVS, Kroger, Rite-Aid, Safeway, Sav-On, Walgreens, and Walmart.
