With the upcoming holiday weekend, we are anticipating a possible influx of patients. Our emergency department volume along with wait times is expected to be higher than usual. As the only Level II trauma center in the San Gabriel Valley and the only emergency room in Pasadena, we have set-up temporary tents to allow more space for those awaiting treatment in our emergency department, should we need to.
Over the next week, Pasadena is expecting tens of thousands of visitors. It’s important that we don’t let our guard down and continue to protect ourselves from the spread of COVID-19, particularly the highly contagious Omicron variant, by masking, physical distancing and avoiding large groups. Also, if you haven’t already, please get vaccinated, and if you are eligible, get your booster shot, for optimal protection.
Please note, Huntington Hospital does not offer testing for COVID-19 to the public. For a list of testing locations, go to:
- Pasadena Public Health Department: Pasadena COVID-19 Testing Information – Public Health Department (cityofpasadena.net)
- LA County Department of Public Health: COVID-19 Testing (lacounty.gov)
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, it’s important that you seek immediate care. Call 9-1-1 or go directly to the nearest emergency department.
