From Carson Tahoe Hospital
The main entrance and emergency room entrance at the Regional Medical Center will be the only way for the public to enter the facility. The Regional Medical Center main entrance will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. All other times, public access is through the main emergency department entrance.
To reduce risk to themselves and others, the hospital is temporarily suspending volunteer operations.
A welcome evaluation area has been set up at the front entrance and the emergency department main entrance, staffed with nurses to screen everyone entering the building. If signs of a respiratory illness are detected, the patient will immediately be presented a mask, isolated, and screened for COVID-19.
The hospital is encouraging visitors to not visit patients at any Carson Tahoe location. If you have a cough, fever, sore throat, body aches, gastrointestinal and/or respiratory symptoms, do not visit patients in the hospital.
If you have fever, cough, gastrointestinal, or respiratory symptoms please call the Nurse Health Line at (775) 445-8100. Visit carsontahoe.org to stay updated with the latest proactive measures taken by Carson Tahoe.
