COVID-19 Information and Visitor Policy for Kaiser Permanente in Northern California

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:

Masks
In counties under public order, anyone entering our facilities must wear a mask. Masks are recommended for all persons entering our facilities in all other counties. If you arrive without a mask, we’ll provide one.

Temperature Screening
Anyone entering our facilities will encounter temperature checkpoints. If you are found to have an elevated temperature you will be asked additional questions with regards to your visit and either escorted to your appointment or asked to contact your care provider.

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.

Each state determines the allotment of vaccine to each county, health system, or pharmacy, and the sequencing and timing of those eligible. If you’re in an eligible group or want to learn more about the vaccine, visit kp.org/covidvaccine.
