COVID-19 Change to Maternity services information

There are some restrictions in place for hospital visitors.

You cannot be a visitor to a hospital setting if you:

  • have COVID-19.
  • recently had COVID-19 and it has been 7 days or less since your isolation period ended.
  • are a close contact, unless in exceptional or compassionate circumstances (e.g. an end of life visit or as a support person in a birthing suite).
  • have returned from overseas in the last 7 days, unless in exceptional or compassionate circumstances (e.g. an end of life visit or as a support person in a birthing suite).
  • have recently had a COVID-19 test and are waiting to receive the results (except for tests due to surveillance testing obligations)
  • have COVID-19 symptoms

Visitors must wear a face mask at all times whilst in the hospital and comply with requirements the hospital has in place.

Close contacts able to visit on compassionate grounds must:

  • test negative within 24 hours prior to entering the hospital setting.
  • have no COVID-19 symptoms.
  • advise the hospital they are a close contact and comply with any requirements they have in place.
  • wear a mask and follow any PPE or protective measures required of you.

Everyone entering the Maternity Unit needs to thoroughly clean their hands at the ward entrance. Thank you for your understanding as we protect the safety of all our patients and your precious babies.
