NOTICE: Due to the large number of people with flu-like symptoms, we are taking extra measures to prevent the spread of the flu virus in our hospitals and to protect our members and the communities we serve. Effective immediately, we will temporarily restrict hospital visits by individuals who are experiencing flu symptoms, and by children who are 14 years of age and younger, for the protection of both the children and our patients.
If you’d like to request an exception to this policy due to a family member who may be in critical health, please contact your patient’s care team.
Due to the large number of people with flu-like symptoms, we are experiencing long waits in some of our emergency rooms, Urgent Care clinics, and on the phone. You can go to the appointment page to make medical appointments, or go to kp.org/flu to view a list of frequently asked flu questions, health guidelines, and symptoms. You may also visit one of Kaiser Permanente's Target Clinic locations without an appointment. As always, if you feel you are having a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room to you.
