The health of our patients is always our top priority. In light of ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are taking precautionary steps to ensure the well-being of our patients, staff and visitors.
Beginning Sept. 20, 2021, all Keck Medicine of USC health care workers, volunteers, vendors or contractors must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Keck Medicine staff who are not fully vaccinated must complete mandatory weekly or twice-weekly COVID-19 testing and wear an N95 mask.
All visitors are required to be fully vaccinated before visiting a patient in our hospitals. Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated visitors are eligible for indoor visits only if they can provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test that was collected within 72 hours of each visit. This policy does not apply to patients seeking care, unless directed by their health care team.
