COVID-19 outbreak alert: Residents in Heidelberg Heights, Heidelberg West, Preston, Broadmeadow, Dallas & Roxburgh Park are encouraged to get tested.
We're continuing to screen all visitors to Austin Health to help keep our patients and staff safe from COVID-19.
We've been looking at way to streamlining the screening process to make it quicker and easier to enter the hospital if you're a visitor or patient.
From 11 June, instead of answering screening questions at the entry, you can simply answer them via our online Visitor Registration form before you arrive - https://visitor.austin.org.au/user
If it's safe for you to enter, a QR code will be generated which you can present to the nurses upon entry.
Staff will also be on hand to assist you with filling out the online if required.
This screening process is a vital step in keeping everybody safe so please allow plenty of time if you're coming to visit a loved one.
Our doctors and nurses are working hard to care for you and our patients. Please take care of them too.
