Visiting Healthcare Settings

Planning a visit to a hospital or nursing home in California? You’ll need to show proof of vaccination for COVID-19 or a negative COVID test (taken within one day of visitation for antigen tests, and within two days of visitation for PCR tests). You'll also be required to wear a well-fitting face mask at all times (a surgical mask, double masking or an N95 or KN95 respirator is recommended) AND maintain physical distance from facility staff and residents.

Some exceptions apply. Read the full guidance.
