VISITOR RESTRICTIONS EASED AT FAR NORTH COAST HOSPITALS

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.
