All visitors must be fully vaccinated (two weeks from last dose of vaccine). OR Confirmed negative COVID test in the last 72 hours if unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated.

Statewide measures are necessary to protect particularly vulnerable populations. Hospitals, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), and intermediate care facilities (ICFs) serve uniquely vulnerable populations where COVID-19 outbreaks can have severe consequences including hospitalization, severe illness, and death.

  • Proof of Identification Must Be Presented At Check-In For Each Visit

California Department of Public Health Guidance for Vaccine Records allows the following methods to be used for proof of vaccination:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card with name of person, type of vaccine, and date of last dose administered issued by the Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or World Health Organization.
    • Photo, copy of card, digital record, or documentation from a health care provider is acceptable.
Unvaccinated Visitors Must Present Negative SARS-COVID-2 Test Collected Within The Last 72 Hours At Check-in For Each Visit

Only SARS-COVID-2 tests authorized by the U.S Food and Drug Administration or Laboratory requirements by the U.S Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will be allowed.

  • End of life or patient in critical condition when death may be imminent
