Mask requirements / physical distancing

Visitors are currently welcome at Metro South Health facilities, and are asked to help keep patients safe by maintaining physical distancing where possible and practising hand hygiene. Please refer to our hospital visitor restrictions for current information on visitation restrictions at our facilities and mask requirements.

You must not visit hospital if you:

  • have been overseas (excluding safe travel zone countries) or visited a COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days 
  • are waiting on COVID-19 test results (except for tests due to surveillance testing obligations)
  • are unwell in any way, particularly with a fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath.
