Health alert: Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are experiencing an increased number of people presenting to our Emergency Departments for treatment of COVID-19. A number of our staff are also impacted by COVID-19, and as a result we are experiencing longer-than-usual emergency department waiting times. Metro South Health will continue to treat the most urgent cases first (Category 1). Please do not attend the emergency department unless it is an emergency. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we prioritise our most urgent cases.

Fully vaccinated visitors may attend our facilities. Please refer to the visitor restrictions for more information. 
Find out where to get tested at one of our fever clinic locations, where to get vaccinated, our COVID-19 response and read the latest Queensland Government information.
