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.
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.
When the California Department of Public Health guidelines are updated as of April 3, 2023, masks will be recommended but not required in most parts of the medical center. Please adhere to all self-symptom screening required for entry to our facilities as posted at entry points. You may receive a recommendation to wear a KP supplied mask upon entry to facility to improve safety. Signs will be posted in areas where masks are required. Per the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health, during the designated winter virus period, Nov. 1 to March 31 of each year, anyone entering our facilities must continue to wear a well-fitted mask that covers their nose, mouth, and chin, regardless of vaccination status.
