Covid-19

Last update 9/27/22

Patient & Visitor Policy Update

At Valley Presbyterian Hospital, the health and safety of patients, visitors, employees, physicians, and the community remain our top priority. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recently updated its COVID-19 Public Health Order, stating that health care facilities no longer need to screen visitors for COVID-19 symptoms, or that visitors provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

According to CDPH, the updated guidance is due, in part, to the increase in the number of Californians - especially health care workers in high-risk settings - who are fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19.

Effective September 22, 2022 visitors are required to:

  • Wear a hospital issued face-covering and a new identification sticker each day, while in the hospital.
  • Follow existing infection prevention practices.
  • Please see our Visitor Hours page for additional information about visitor hours, number of visitors, and other requirements for specific units.
We continue to revise and adhere to the latest CDPH guidelines and infection control practices through the COVID-19 pandemic period. As a result, there may be frequent changes to the visitor policy. Thank you for helping us keep patients, visitors, staff and physicians safe.
