COVID-19 outbreak alert: Residents in Heidelberg Heights, Heidelberg West, Preston, Broadmeadow, Dallas & Roxburgh Park are encouraged to get tested.
Following the Premier’s announcement on Sunday 27 September, we have updated our approach to managing visitors to Austin Health sites.
Under the new restrictions, most patients are permitted to have one visitor, once a day for two hours per day.
From Tuesday 29 September, we’ll be allowing visitors access to our sites during three separate visiting periods each day:
Please note that children under the age of 16 are not permitted to visit patients at the present time.
Visitors are also asked to remember to keep a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and others wherever possible.
We are screening all visitors and outpatients entering Austin Health buildings, and have limited the number of entrances that people can use.
You can help us to speed up the screening process by filling in our online Visitor Registration form before coming to visit.
More information about screening points and visitor entrances is also available here.
Please treat our staff with kindness and respect.
