SVH COMMUNITY COVID-19 UPDATE: May 22, 2020 (updated May 27, 2020)

Sonoma Valley residents who wish to receive a COVID-19 test can now do so at two local testing sites without cost. Through a collaboration between the Department of Public Health (DPH), Sonoma Valley Community Health Center (SVCHC), and Supervisor Susan Gorin, community-wide public testing is now available at Sonoma Valley Hospital and Altimira Middle School.

Drive-through testing will be offered at Sonoma Valley Hospital, 347 Andrieux St., from 2:30 to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. Testing at Altimira Middle School, 17805 Arnold Drive, will be held on Saturdays only, from noon till 4:00 pm.

The test is available only for people in four-wheel, closed-top vehicles; commercial vehicles and RVs are not allowed. No more than four people are permitted per car, and each must be next to a working car window for the testing to be administered.

Walk up testing is not being offered as part of this service. Those without a car can call 707.935.8005 to learn about other testing options

This is a critical milestone toward broadening the testing of people with or without symptoms and the re-opening of our communities. DPH recently stated that, “Upwards of 40 percent of people who test positive experience no symptoms (asymptomatic), but can still spread the disease.” 

We encourage everyone in our community who suspects exposure to someone with COVID-19, or has concerns, to be tested. For more information call the COVID-19 hotline at 707.935.8005 or visit the website.

COVID-19 testing will continue to be conducted at the hospital as part of emergency care, physician ordered diagnostics, or prior to a surgery or invasive procedure.

Hospital Resumes Most Elective and Outpatient Procedures

The hospital has resumed most routine operations and is now scheduling many surgeries and outpatient procedures. We’re here if you require a lab test, radiology or advanced imaging, mammography screening, occupational health, cardiology, rehabilitation therapy, or wound care visit.

If you have delayed attending to your healthcare needs because of the COVID-19 crisis, it’s time to schedule the care you require. As always, the safety of patients and staff remains our top priority and we continue to implement current recommended safety practices including enhanced rigorous sanitizing protocols for all rooms, public spaces, waiting areas, and monitoring of staff health. All patients are screened upon arrival and we are requiring masks and safe distancing inside the facilities at all times. Please bring a facial covering for your visit if you have one. If not, we will provide one.

If you have questions or concerns about a scheduled appointment, or would like to make or reschedule an appointment, please call our Patient Access Center directly at (707) 935.5020.
