Coronavirus Updates

Your health is essential. Don't delay getting the care you need.

 

COVID-19 Vaccine

Marian Regional Medical Center is not currently hosting vaccine clinics for the COVID-19 booster. If you are eligible to receive the booster we encourage you to call your local pharmacy for an appointment or visit Myturn.ca.gov and register for the third dose.
 

For additional information on the COVID-19 vaccine, we recommend reviewing the FAQs on the CDC website and FDA website.

Visitor Guidelines

In accordance with state and local health organization guidance, all visitors are required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within the last 72 hours, or proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before visiting anyone in our care. 

In addition, the following guidelines are in effect:

  • One designated care partner per patient for the duration of admission
  • Two guardians will be allowed in the Neonatal Intesive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatrics Department
  • Care partners must be 18 years of age or older and in good health
  • Visitor restrictions for end-of-life situations will be assessed on a case-by-case basis

We realize and understand this is a sensitive situation for loved ones, but this is an important step we are taking to minimize the spread of the coronavirus while also protecting you and your loved ones, as well as our staff and physicians. We encourage your loved ones to utilize any personal technology so that you can enjoy face-to-face communication.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the patient’s nurse. We appreciate your understanding during this time. 

Marian Regional Medical Center Announces that Employees Must be Vaccinated Against COVID-19

In keeping with Dignity Health's mission of improving the health of those it serves and especially those who are vulnerable, and our commitment to providing safe care for patients and a safe work environment for clinicians and staff, Marian Regional Medical Center is requiring all employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 1, 2021. This requirement also includes all physicians, Advanced Practice Providers, volunteers, and others caring for patients within our facility.

 

As health care providers we have a responsibility to help end this pandemic and protect our patients, our colleagues, and those in our communities. Requiring vaccination for our teams is critical to maintaining a safe care environment. Medical and religious exemptions will be available for those who qualify.

 

Throughout the pandemic, Dignity Health has implemented a broad range of safety measures to be able to continue providing essential health care services to everyone in our communities, including those battling life-threatening COVID-19 infections. Unfortunately, COVID-19 cases are on the rise again due to the threat of variants, and many communities continue to have low vaccination rates. Our decision to require the COVID-19 vaccination for our teams is rooted in a commitment to keeping our community safe -- and bringing an end to this pandemic as quickly as possible.

 

By requiring the COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of employment, just as we do with the flu (influenza) vaccine, Dignity Health joins health systems and associations across the country in supporting vaccination for health care workers in an effort to continue protecting our patients, staff, and communities from this dangerous disease.
