Providence Holy Cross Medical Center Visitation Guidelines

Updated Sept. 21, 2022
Effective Immediately

In compliance with the California Department of Public Health, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center is pleased to announce a return to our normal visitation guidelines:


  • Normal visiting hours are from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
  • All visitors are required to wear a medical-grade mask during their visit.
  • Visitors will no longer be screened for COVID symptoms prior to entering our medical center and will not need to provide proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test.
  • The number of visitors per day will not be restricted.  However, we encourage no more than two visitors - aged 13 years or older - in the room at one time. (Mother-Child Services, the Emergency Department and the Critical Care Unit will have unique guidelines.  Please speak with the patient’s nurse for specifics.)
  • Visitors are welcome to enjoy our Bistro and Gift Shop on the First Floor and to utilize our waiting rooms during visiting hours. 
  • Please postpone your visit if you feel ill and/or are experiencing any signs or symptoms of cold, flu, or COVID-19.

Thank you for supporting a healing environment for our patients.

Please note that this visitation policy is subject to change and may be adjusted at any time at the discretion of the hospital.
