New California Department of Public Health Visitor Restrictions
Thank you for your understanding as we implement new California Department of Public Health (CDPH) requirements for our hospital visitors.

In compliance with the CDPH order, all hospital visitors are required to show either proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test (obtained within the last 72 hours). These requirements don't apply if you're visiting a clinic or outpatient facility.

If you are fully vaccinated (two weeks after your last dose), you must present one of the following as proof of vaccination:

  • Your CDC-issued COVID-19 vaccination record card (or WHO Yellow Card) with your name, vaccine type, and date last dose administered.
  • A photo (or digital image) of your vaccination record card.
  • Documentation of COVID-19 vaccination from your healthcare provider.
  • Digital record and QR code with your name, date of birth, vaccine dates and vaccine type. Learn how to obtain a digital copy of your vaccination record.

If you are not fully vaccinated, find out about getting tested (testing at our facilities only available if you're a current patient with a doctor's order).

If you're visiting a patient in critical condition (when death may be imminent), you are exempt from these guidelines.
