We must all play our part to reduce transmission of COVID-19:
- Get tested, even if you have the mildest of symptoms. Find out where to get tested.
- Book your vaccination appointment. Find out more.
- Follow the COVIDSafe Settings. See the current restrictions.
- Keep an eye on exposure sites. View locations.
And importantly, if you are a patient of the Women’s and you have visited an exposure site in the last 14 days, are feeling unwell, waiting on a coronavirus test result or you or someone close to you has recently tested positive, please call us on (03) 8345 2000 to let us know.
You will not miss out on the care you need. In some cases, we may reschedule your appointment or offer you a telehealth appointment over the phone or video call. Whatever your circumstance, we are here to help you.
Please also be aware of our hospital visitor restrictions. These are in place to ensure the safety of newborns and patients in our care, as well as our staff.
