COVID-19 Visitor Update
[Last updated 12 July 2022]
We continue to prioritise the provision of a COVID Safe environment within our rehabilitation facilities and regularly review the risk of community transmission that may present through our visitors. As such, with the escalating levels of transmission within the community, our visiting conditions have been updated.
As of Wednesday 13 July 2022, we will be permitting only two (2) visitors (children included) per patient, per day, for a maximum of two (2) hours, except end of life, within the specified hours below.
Visiting hours will be as follows:
- Monday–Sunday (including public holidays): 12:00pm to 6:00pm
Please note, only two (2) visitors will be permitted to enter a shared room at any given time and should that conflict with other visitors, they will be asked to visit in the patient lounge or wait until the room is unoccupied, or alternatively we can arrange an external area, weather permitting.
Visitors should NOT visit if they are unwell, have any flu like symptoms, or if they have been advised by the Department of Health to isolate.
Mask wearing is mandatory in all areas of our facilities at all times without exception.
The safety of our patients and staff remains our highest priority and we maintain strict safety protocols on site, including physical distancing, hand hygiene and wearing of masks on arrival.
Please be patient and pleasant with our staff as we support the ongoing need to balancing safety and contact between our patients with their families.
Thanking you for your understanding and cooperation in advance.
