COVID-19 Update 


The staff at Oroville Hospital Post Acute Center would like to say Happy New Year to all of our residents and their families. We continue to take precautionary steps to help mitigate Covid-19 throughout the facility. Our residents safety is always a priority as well as maintaining connection with family and loved ones for their psychosocial wellbeing. We continue to closely monitor updates from our local health department as well as the CDC in regards to Covid-19, its variants, and precautionary steps we need to take to protect our staff and residents. We will continue to provide updates regarding Covid-19 as new information becomes available. 

To date at Oroville Hospital Post Acute Center, we have had a total of 98 staff members and 143 residents test positive for Covid-19 since March 2020.

We maintain our understanding and recognize the importance of staying connected to your loved ones. We continue to encourage family members to communicate with their loved ones through video chat, phone calls, text messages, or social media. Please contact our facility directly to discuss all available options to include visitation so we can do our best to assist you and your loved one.

We continue to take steps based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to reduce the spread and impact of COVID-19, such as:

  • Enhanced infection control precautions
  • Screening residents, staff, and essential visitors for an expanded list of symptoms
  • Continued limitation of entry of people to the building while continuing to meet the needs of our residents.
  • Testing staff and residents for COVID-19 based on current protocols, outbreaks or exposures, and availability of tests.
  • Continued postponement of communal activities

 We will continue to provide you with updates. Please know that we are adhering to guidelines from the local and state health departments, which continue to evolve as we learn more about this virus and its variants. We know that you may have questions and we encourage you to reach out to our center. Please refer to our website at www.orovillepostacute.com for updates or call us at (530) 533-7335 about the status of your loved one.
