This page is updated regularly. Please check back for the lastest information and announcments.

We are continuously monitoring new information about the new coronavirus and the associated disease (COVID-19). We are adapting our processes to reflect the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). 

To keep our community safe, we have implemented the following changes:

Screening at Entrances

People entering any of the public entrances at the facilities will be stopped and asked a series of questions about potential COVID-19 symptoms, including new cough and fever, as well as travel history, based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Learn more about our screenings.

Elective Surgeries and Procedures

  1. It is now appropriate to resume performing non-emergent but essential surgeries and procedures.
  2. Three days prior to their surgery or procedure, patients will have a COVID-19 test along with their other preoperative testing. Patients will self-isolate from the time of the test until the time of their surgery. Enhanced infection prevention protocols will be in place for the safety of patients, staff, and physicians.
  3. The scheduling of certain diagnostic radiology procedures had been postponed.  The postponement has been lifted, and all radiology services are now available at the Lompoc Valley Medical Center.

Re-opening of Services and Locations

All Lompoc Health clinic services are currently available, for both in-person and TeleVists.

Physical Therapy services were reopened at Lompoc Health - North H Center.

During this pandemic, some community members have avoided coming to the Emergency Room, unless necessary. We now encourage you to seek Emergency Room care if you feel you have a potentially emergent situation.   We have implemented enhanced infection prevention and patient protection protocols, and we believe you should not hesitate to seek emergency care if needed.

Visitation remains prohibited at the Comprehensive Care Center through the end of June. Distance visits are available in a variety of modes. To discuss extenuating circumstances, contact Administrator Lorraine Jones at (805) 736-3466.
