COVID-19 Vaccine

COVID-19 and its variants continue to impact communities across our country and the world. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all Americans age 5 and older, with few exceptions, be vaccinated against the virus. Read the CDC's latest guidance.

Corona Regional is NOT a community vaccination site. Please refer to your local health authority or pharmacy for information on community vaccination sites.

Latest COVID-19 Information

The safety of our patients and staff has always been and remains our top priority. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have implemented extraordinary measures and additional protocols, including mandatory masking in our facilities, to help ensure a safe and clean environment for our patients, physicians, staff and community. We continue to actively monitor and respond to all recommendations made by the CDC and our local health agencies.

Thank you for entrusting your care to us. When you or your loved ones need services, know that we are here … safe, trusted and ready to deliver a superior healthcare experience.

Watch this interview with Dr. Aimee French, ICU Director at Corona Regional, where she discusses COVID-19, its surge in our county, and how we can continue to care for ourselves and our loved ones during this pandemic.

Emergency Department – Do Not Delay in Seeking Critical Care

Our Emergency Department is staffed 24/7 to serve those with emergency medical conditions. Individuals experiencing serious injuries or medical symptoms such as chest pain, numbness, difficulty breathing or mental confusion should call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency department. It could save your life.

Our rooms are private and have an additional layer of protection with the utilization of UV light technology that kills germs once a room is unoccupied. Curtains and doors are kept closed and patients are separated based on symptoms.

Individuals Experiencing COVID-19 Symptoms

If you develop a fever or cough or have difficulty breathing, or have had close contact with someone who has had a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result, please seek medical attention by calling your provider’s office or an Urgent Care Center.

If you need help deciding if you should seek medical care, access the CDC Coronavirus Self-Checker on the CDC COVID-19 Symptoms page by clicking on the Coronavirus Self-Checker button at the top of the page.

LIMITED VISITATION — Be an Advocate for Your Loved One’s Care

Consistent with city and county efforts around social distancing to limit the exposure to individuals who may have contracted COVID-19 but are at that time asymptomatic, we have revised our Visitation Policies to help protect our patients and their loved ones.

The following is in effect until further notice:

  • In accordance with California State Public Health Order: All visitors must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result within the past 72 hours in order to enter the hospital.
  • Visitors are permitted on the inpatient floors of the main hospital from Noon – 8 pm. Limited visitation is permitted in outpatient surgery, in compassionate care/end-of-life situations and for maternity/neonatal patients. In these cases, visitors will be limited to a specific room only and must wear a mask, which we request that you bring with you.
  • ER – Limited visitation for non-COVID-19 patients only. Minors may have one negative-screened parent or guardian accompany them. Patients with a cognitive or developmental disability may have a negative-screened support person, if medically necessary.
  • Outpatient Surgery – One visitor may accompany the patient for pre-op and post-op consult in Outpatient Surgery areas. Both patient and visitor are required to wear a mask upon arrival. The visitor will need to leave before the surgery starts and may not wait in the waiting room. The visitor will be notified via cell phone when the patient is ready to be given their discharge information and picked up. The visitor needs to wear a mask again upon reentry into the hospital, going directly to the designated patient discharge area.
  • Visitors are subject to temperature check and screening upon arrival at the hospital. Individuals will be prohibited from entering the hospital if they:
    • Have been in contact within the last 14 days with a person suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19
    • Have had a cough or flu-like symptoms, including sore throat, headache, muscle aches, nausea, diarrhea, or abdominal pain, or loss of taste or smell in the last 24 hours
    • Felt feverish or experienced chills in the last 48 hours
    • Had a fever of 100°F or greater in the last 48 hours
  • Travel history will be queried; those who have had travel outside the country or domestically within the last 14 days will not be permitted to proceed within the hospital.

Thank you for your cooperation and for being an advocate for the health and care of your loved ones and all hospitalized patients.
