Visiting hours

Visitors are able to attend our facilities in Metro South Health.

Please refer to our hospital visitor restrictions for current information on visitation restrictions at our facilities and mask requirements. If you have any symptoms or are concerned about your exposure to COVID-19, you can visit one of the fever clinic locations in Metro South.


Mask requirements / physical distancing

All patients and visitors/support persons (where tolerated) must maintain physical distancing where possible and wear a face mask, if safe to do so, if they cannot stay 1.5m apart from other people. Density rules allow one person per two square metres (2m2). You will be required to check in using the Check in Qld app when visiting the hospital. Hospital staff need to adhere to appropriate PPE requirements.

You must not visit hospital if you:

  • have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or asked to quarantine
  • have had contact with a person with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • 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
  • are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, unless their quarantine period has ended
  • have been to an interstate exposure venue in the last 14 days.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
