COVID-19 Visitor Update
As always, the protection of our patients and staff is our highest priority.
There is now NO restriction on the total number of visitors allowed per day during the visiting hours.
However, in keeping with current social distancing guidelines the maximum number of visitors permitted at any one time is two (2).
Visiting hours are as follows:
• Monday – Friday: 12:00pm to 500pm
• Weekends and Public Holidays: 11:00am – 2:00pm
Visitors should NOT visit if they have returned from overseas in the last 14 days, or if they have been advised by the DHHS to isolate, as a result of coming into contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case or they have visited one of the identified case location and outbreak areas. If the case, access will be denied and visitors will be unable to enter the facility.
We apologise for the inconvenience and hardship this may cause, but appreciate your understanding of the need to keep patients as safe as possible during these challenging times.
