Changes to our visitor policy

If you plan to visit us for in-person care, you’ll see we have many safety measures in place to help protect your health while you’re in our facilities. Be sure to check our visitor policy before coming in for your visit.

 

For the health and safety of our patients, doctors, and staff, and in accordance with recent guidelines from the state of California, we are limiting visitors in our facilities. Anyone under 14 who is not a patient may not visit patients at this time.

 

Please do not visit or accompany patients if you have a cough or cold or are sick.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work diligently to protect our patients and staff and reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
