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:
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.
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.
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.
Please do not visit or accompany patients if you have a cough or cold or are sick. All visitors must wear a proper face mask at all times and maintain at least six feet of distance from other visitors and patients while on our campus.
Any visitor who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 30 days or showing any COVID-19 symptoms will not be permitted entrance.
