COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019)
Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak.
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).
Comprehensive Care Center
In-person visitation for residents has resumed. If a change in COVID-19 status occurs at the facility, the visitation rules will be updated. All visitors will be screened at the front door and based on the vaccination status of both residents and the visiting family members, there will be the opportunity to visit with either physical distancing or with brief hugging or holding of hands. Meetings have been held to explain the new visitation protocol to family members. Please contact CCC Administrator, Lorraine Jones, with any questions.
Lompoc Valley Medical Center
For inpatients, two visitors from the same household are permitted. The visitors need not be designated in advance. For the Emergency Department, one visitor is permitted for adult patients, and two visitors for pediatric patients. For surgical patients, due to limited space for physical distancing, one visitor is permitted. In all of the above areas, exceptions may be considered for special circumstances and “special populations” (i.e., pediatric patients, patients with certain disabilities, and end-of-life situations).
Visitors and support persons are restricted from accompanying patients at our Lompoc Health clinics.
Closures and Cancellations
- All lectures and support groups are being offered as online webinars.
- Ocean’s Seven Café is open for patient visitors only.
- Lompoc Health - Lab &Imaging at 1111 E Ocean Ave is closed until further notice.

Care Continuum During a Public Emergency
California is experiencing an unprecedented and exponential surge in COVID-19 cases, and staffing and other resources are becoming strained, across the State. While LVMC is currently conducting normal operations, we have plans in place to work with other hospitals in the county, healthcare networks, local healthcare coalitions, the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department, and our local Medical Health Operational Area Coordinators (MHOACs), to provide support needed so all California facilities can function effectively to ensure that healthcare is delivered based on ethical principles including equity.
LVMC is guided in its planning by the California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) document: California Crisis Care Continuum Guidelines.
