New visitation rules in effect for California SNFs

A statewide order went into effect August 11 in California that requires proof of vaccination for all SNF visitors. If a visitor cannot prove vaccination status, they must provide a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the visit.

All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear a mask as well.

This order provides exemptions for end-of-life visits and outdoor visits.
