California State Mandate

Effective August 11, 2021, a California state mandate requires visitors to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination OR negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours before each visit.

The California Department of Public Health allows certain visitors be exempt from the vaccination and testing requirements. Those include:

  • visitors for patient in critical condition, when death may be imminent;
  • parent or guardian visitors of pediatric patients;
  • a support person and doula for a labor and delivery patient; and
  • support persons for a patient with physical, intellectual, developmental disability, or cognitive impairment.

All visitors, however, must comply with all infection control and prevention requirements applicable for indoor visits.
