Updated July 2, 2020
At Kaiser Permanente, our main goal is to protect our members, their families, and our staff. In order to do this, we have implemented a new visitor policy at our medical centers and we kindly ask that you follow these guidelines for visiting a Kaiser Permanente medical center:
- At this time, we’re not allowing visitors into the facility unless they’re an essential caregiver accompanying a member with an appointment. Members have the option to use video or voice call with a relative or caregiver on their personal device while with the doctor. This will allow for social distancing in the exam room and in the medical office building to help keep members and staff safe.
- Do not allow people who have a fever, cough, cold, or flu symptoms to accompany you.
- Keep a safe distance from other people (at least 6 feet away) in the waiting room and other open areas whenever possible.
- Bring and wear your personal mask upon entering a Kaiser Permanente medical center.
- Follow respiratory hygiene while in the building:
- Wash your hands.
- Cover your cough.
- Sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and then discard tissue and wash your hands.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
