There’s good news for people wanting to visit loved ones in hospital, with the local health district announcing a partial easing of visitor restrictions.
From today, visitor restrictions will be eased to allow the following:
General and Mental Health Inpatient Units: A maximum of two visitors per one hour visiting session, with two one hour visiting sessions allowed per day. This means four individuals could visit across the two sessions.
Maternity Units: Siblings can now visit, on the condition that they are currently well.
MPS sites: Four designated visitors a day, being two visitors at a time, for one hour.
Visitor hours will remain restricted to between 1pm and 6pm daily.
