Facilities in Metro South Health follow directions about visiting from the Prime Minister and the Chief Health Officer.
Sometimes visitors need to be restricted further to ensure patients and residents are safe. It is important to protect our patients or residents from other illnesses including influenza or other non-COVID respiratory viruses.
At these times, our staff work with patients, residents and family members so everyone knows how they can help keep patients safe.
