Visiting Hospitals

Whilst visitor restrictions are no longer mandated by the Health Minister, our hospital remains committed to balancing every patient’s need for contact with family and friends, with protecting our vulnerable patients from the risk of exposure to COVID 19.

Visitor restrictions remain in place for all care facilities.

Visiting a Residential Aged Care Facility is not covered by this webpage – refer below for Glanville Village guidance.

 COVIDSafe practices for visitors include:

    • Individuals who have tested positive in the last 7 days must not visit hospitals
    • Individuals who have had close contact with positive cases in the last 7 days should not visit hospitals
    • Individuals who have been tested for COVID-19 and have not yet received their result, should not visit care facilities
    • Visitors may consider doing a rapid antigen test on the day of the visit (or as required by local arrangements for hospitals and care facilities)

*Any exceptions to the exclusion criteria listed above can only be approved by the Chief Nurse or the Chief Medical Officer.

Further COVID information


Visiting hours

Whilst strict restrictions to visiting have eased, we ask that only visitors providing necessary care and support attend the health service, rather than those attending for social purposes.

This ongoing restraint will allow us to promote a safe, restful and restorative environment for our patients.

11:00 am – 1:00 pm daily

3:00 pm – 7:00 pm daily

(entry prior to 6:00 pm to allow time for screening)

Rest Period 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Please limit visiting during rest period to allow patients to rest and recover from a busy morning of hygiene, doctor rounds, treatment, therapy and exercise.

 ED, HDU & Chemo will continue to restrict numbers to support social distancing and promote safe patient care.
