Health alert: Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Visiting hours

Some Visitor Restrictions at our facilities due to COVID-19

Visitors are restricted at Brisbane Metropolitan hospitals at this time due to a positive COVID-19 case that has been active in the local community. Princess Alexandra Hospital and QEII Hospital are currently affected by the lockdown affecting hospitals, aged care and disability care facilities in the Brisbane City Council areas and Moreton region.  

Masks are mandatory for all staff, patients (where tolerated), and any visitors who have an exemption to visit, when interacting within 1.5 metres of others on the campus. 

Patients can have visitors at our other hospitals at any one time, for any length of time within visiting hours, however it is important to note that some restrictions remain in certain areas of our hospital to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep you, our patients and our staff safe - which is our highest priority.

When you visit our hospitals

Visitors must practise physical distancing of 1.5 metres. You may be asked to check in and provide contact details when visiting the hospital.

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.

Refer to the visiting hours page for additional information on restrictions and exemptions.

Thank you for your support and understanding during this time.


Each of our hospitals has different visiting hours, however we are not accepting visitors during this time:
