About Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)


San Ramon Regional Medical Center is working closely with Contra Costa Health Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to respond to any potential coronavirus cases in our area. We routinely treat infectious diseases at San Ramon Regional Medical Center. We have strong infection control policies, procedures, and systems in place to screen and treat patients. We are committed to keeping our patients, our staff, and our community safe. For more information about the coronavirus, go to the CDC website.

 

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.
