For your safety, the California Department of Public Health has ordered new visitor requirement to Hospitals and Skilled Nursing Facilities. As of August 11, 2021, when visiting patients and residents at Eastern Plumas Health Care, you will need to show one of the following:

  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.
  • Individuals who have not been vaccinated, or are only partially vaccinated, must provide documentation of a negative COVID-19 test within the previous 72 hours.

EPHC offers no-cost, in-house PCR testing, with next-day results (as supplies allow). To schedule a test before visiting a family member, please call (530) 832-6562 or  (530) 832-6561.

To schedule a visit in our Skilled Nursing Facilities, please call the nurse’s station at (530) 832-6543 (Portola) or (530) 993-6120 (Loyalton).

Masks are required at all times in our facility, and a surgical mask will be provided to all visitors. Cloth masks are not permitted inside EPHC.

Help us keep you and your community safe. For any questions, please call 530-832-6600.
