The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has issued a state mandated public health order regarding visitation within all hospitals in California.

Effective Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021, all visitors must show proof of full vaccination or provide documentation of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entering our facility. Visitors may use either PCR testing or antigen testing as proof.

Examples of acceptable documentation include a valid and complete CDC vaccination card or electronic copy or a valid and complete vaccination record from the state registry.

Visitors of end-of-life patients are exempt from the vaccination and testing requirements. In addition, the following visitors have a limited exemption from the vaccination or testing requirements:

  • Parent or guardian visitors of pediatric patients
  • Support persons for a labor and delivery patient
  • Support persons for a patient with physical, intellectual, developmental disability, or cognitive impairment are considered visitors who are visiting a patient in critical condition

As soon as reasonably possible, these visitors must comply with the vaccine verification or applicable testing requirements within 72 hours. They must still comply with other infection control and prevention requirements that apply to indoor visits.

Masks are still required for all visitors.

This state order is keeping with our commitment to providing a safe environment for our patients, visitors, employees and the people of the communities we serve.

Thank you for entrusting us with your healthcare needs. We wish you all the best on your path to continued health.

COVID-19 Vaccines Administered to San Ramon Regional Teams

Dec 16, 2020

It was a historic moment as frontline workers began receiving their COVID-19 vaccines at San Ramon Regional Medical Center on Dec. 16, 2020.

Dr. Renzo Cardena – Emergency Medicine Physician – was the first person to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at San Ramon Regional. There were lots cheers and claps as the first vaccine was administered.

“The vaccine is an important step forward to get back to normalcy,” Dr. Cardena said. “Obviously the highest risk and most vulnerable should be vaccinated first. However, eventually when the young and healthy are offered the vaccine, this will be a crucial step in combating this virus. When the young and healthy get vaccinated, this is more to protect their loved ones, and can be viewed as a selfless act of humanity.”

We are vaccinating eligible members of our staff in accordance with FDA, CDC, state, and local guidelines. We are hopeful that we will be able to immunize all healthcare workers working in areas that are high risk for COVID exposures in the first few weeks of immunizations. Immunization of all healthcare workers will happen in the first phase of immunization.

There was definitely a sense of hope and excitement as caregivers received their vaccines. While there is still work to be done and we can't let our guards down, we are heading in the right direction.

The most effective safety measures we can take against COVID-19 continue to be wearing a mask, washing our hands, and maintaining social distance.
