COVID-19: Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital

At Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, our top priority is protecting the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff. Restrictions remain in place to stop the spread of COVID-19. We continue to evaluate our visitor policy to ensure everyone’s safety.

All visitors must pass a health screening and temperature check upon arrival. Per CDC guidance, visitors to healthcare facilities, including all Cedars-Sinai facilities, are still required to wear masks at all times, maintain physical distancing, practice hand hygiene and stay in the patient’s room while visiting.

Given the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors are allowed under the following circumstances only:

  • Patients under the age of 18 in the Emergency Department:
    • One pair of parents/guardians if vaccinated.
  • End-of-Life Patients:
    • COVID-19 positive or suspected: One visitor per day, up to 2 hours
    • All others: Up to two visitors per day, 24 hours/day

All other visitation requests must be approved by hospital administration

Additionally, no visitors are currently allowed in the Emergency Department.

All approved visitors must pass a health screening and show proof of one of the following:

  • Full vaccination against COVID-19, including proof of a booster shot if the visitor is booster eligible
  • Proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 48 hours of a visit
  • Proof of a negative COVID-19 antigen test within 24 hours of a visit

We will not accept home tests. 

Additional guidelines to note:
  • Anyone visiting the hospital must pass a health screening, including a temperature check. Visitors with a fever of 100 degrees and higher will not be allowed to enter.
  • Visitors are required to wear masks at all times, even when in the patient’s room and anytime anyone enters the patient’s room. While some COVID-19 policies are being relaxed at other venues, our pandemic safety protocols remain the same, regardless of vaccination status. The CDC’s announcement that people who are fully vaccinated can stop wearing masks does not apply to healthcare settings.
  • Visitors are asked to stay in patient rooms when visiting. 
  • Visitors are not allowed to eat or drink indoors, including in lobbies or patient rooms.
