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 provided physical distancing can be accomplished and visitors comply with infection control guidelines, including masking.

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.

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.

Volunteer to Share Your Experience and Help Make a Difference in Patient Care

Since its official launch in 2012, Kaiser Permanente Redwood City and South San Francisco Medical Centers’ Patient Advisory Council (PAC) has grown from an idea to a highly active group of members who help make a difference in the patient experience for all Kaiser Permanente members and their families. Currently, the PAC has 17 Patient Partners. We are excited to expand the program so we can make an even greater impact.  The goal for our PAC is to represent the diversity of the communities we serve in San Mateo County.

Our PAC plays an important role by sharing the experiences and insights of our members to help shape our programs. In addition to monthly PAC meetings, Patient Partners also have opportunities to participate in medical center committees, focus groups, and a wide variety of projects with Kaiser Permanente staff and physicians.

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. Not sure which COVID-19 test is right for you? See our guidelines on choosing the right COVID-19 test.

For those times that you need an in-person COVID-19 PCR test as directed by your doctor or if you are attending an event or activity that specifically requires a negative PCR test result, you can now get a rapid PCR test with results in approximately 2 hours at our convenient Northern California Kaiser Permanente testing locations. No appointment is needed and there is no cost.
