A notice to our Visitors: Effective January 10, 2022, per the California Department of Public Health, all visitors are required to provide proof of a negative PCR COVID test taken within the last 48 hours, or proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before visiting anyone in our care.

  • The health and safety of our patients, employees, and the community remains our top priority. In accordance with California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidelines, St. Elizabeth Community Hospital is restricting the number of visitors in order to protect the health of our patients and staff, and the Red Bluff community at large.

  • If you are a vaccinated visitor, you must show proof of vaccination. Acceptable forms of verification include: Vaccination Record Card, a picture or copy of your Vaccination Record Card with accompanying photo ID, Digital Vaccination Record, or documentation from a health care provider.

  • Visitors who are visiting a patient in critical condition may be exempt from the vaccination and testing requirements.

  • Visitors who are accompanying a pediatric patient, a support person in labor & delivery, a patient with physical, intellectual, and/or developmental disabilities or patient with cognitive impairments may also meet the exemption criteria.

  • Even if fully vaccinated, all visitors must be screened for fever and COVID-19 symptoms.

  • All visitors must wear a facility provided N95 mask. A face mask must be worn over both mouth and nose at all times.

  • Visitors must go directly to and from the patient room. Please do not walk around the hallways.

  • We will support patient communications with loved ones as much as possible through the phones in patient rooms, and through patients’ personal cell phones or tablets. There is supported Wi-Fi through SECH Guest Network.

  • If a need arises for an exception visit, the care team will work to facilitate it with the patient’s healthcare team.

  • Being in the hospital and away from loved ones is never easy, and can be especially hard during the holidays. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience to patients and their families.

  • Thank you for helping us keep our patients, staff and community safe.

If you would like to receive your COVID-19 vaccination and help us protect our community, you can register for an appointment at www.MyTurn.CA.gov. For community testing appointments, please visit www.lhi.care.

Thank you for helping us keep our community safe and healthy!
