Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa Medical Center is dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak. More than a dozen hospital workers and a few patients have tested positive in recent days. In response, the hospital is requiring doctors and other staff members to wear masks while providing direct patient care. Visitors will also be required to wear a mask while inside all areas of the hospital building. The California Department of Public Health lifted statewide masking requirements for healthcare facilities less than three weeks ago.
