Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Visiting Hours and Guidelines

Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Welcomes Visitors for our Patients

 

The following visitation guidelines apply to all of our patients:

  • 1 visitor per patient at a time. 
  • There is a maximum of 2 visitors per day, but they are not designated visitors. Therefore, the two visitors can be different the following day. 

In special circumstances, we reserve the right to impose additional restrictions. These situations will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

 

For all visitors:

  • If visitors are fully vaccinated (this includes having their booster dose if they are booster-eligible*), they must show proof of vaccination to enter. For a digital COVID-19 vaccination record, visit https://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov/.  

  • If visitors are unvaccinated or booster-eligible*, but do not yet have a booster, they must show proof of a negative antigen test taken in the last 24 hours or a negative PCR test taken within the last 48 hours.

  • For visitors who visit for multiple consecutive days, proof of a negative test is only required every third day (therefore testing is only required on day one, day four, day seven and so on).

  • In emergent situations, there is a 72 hour grace period during which the visitor is exempt from the vaccination and testing requirements, however the visitor must comply with the requirements as soon as reasonably possible.

*Booster eligibility is defined as 5 months past the Pfizer or Moderna two-dose series, or 2 months past the single dose of Johnson & Johnson.

In special circumstances, we reserve the right to impose additional restrictions. These situations will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
