Visitor Guidelines


As of March 23, 2021, in recognition of the significant positive impact that visitors have on patient recovery, two visitors at the same time are permitted. The two individuals must be screened for COVID-19 symptoms upon entry to the building, should be from the same household, must wear a mask at all times, and are advised to visit within the patient room only. 

Visitation hours are 8am-8pm. 


Visitors are an important member of the healthcare team and play a vital role in the mental well-being and recovery of our patients. With San Diego County now in the Red Tier and the majority of healthcare professionals vaccinated, CDPH recommends a gradual lifting of visitor restrictions. Therefore, it is encouraged to have visitors at the bedside safely.

These guidelines are based on current health conditions in our community and are subject to change as conditions change.

General Guidelines

  • 1-2 visitors age 16 and over are allowed to visit/accompany a patient in the hospital. 
  • If visitors are already present, others must wait outside the hospital. Visitors should not gather or wait in the lobbies.
  • At this time, no overnight stays are permitted.

Visitor Expectations

  • Visitors must be screened and receive a visitor wristband at the security desk upon arrival.
  • Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed to visit.
  • Visitors must wear a mask at all times. If any visitors are not willing to comply they can be asked to leave.
  • Visitors may go to the café for food and drinks. However, all food and drink must be consumed outside.
  • Social distancing must be practiced at all times. If proper social distancing cannot be done in the patient’s room, the visitor(s) may be asked to leave the room while the care team is present.
