We have up the restrictions in place to manage visitors to our sites.
From Tuesday 17 November, each patient is able to have one visitor OR one group of visitors, once a day for up to two hours.
Children under the age of 16 will also be allowed to visit patients when accompanied by a guardian.
Groups of visitors must live together in the same household. Household groups can be made up of two adults OR one adult plus children (under 16).
An additional two-hour visiting block between 5.30pm – 7.30pm has also been added.
Visitors will now be able to access to our sites during four visiting periods each day:
We still have specific arrangements in place in certain areas to keep everybody safe including:
Visitors are reminded to keep a distance of 1.5 metres between themselves and others and to follow the directions of staff to help keep everyone safe.
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.
