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.
