While COVID restrictions ease in the community, the hospital and health system is operating at COVID Peak status to care for an increasing number of COVID positive patients.
To prevent the risk of transmission in our hospitals, and to protect our staff, patients and families, visitor restrictions remain in place.
We must all continue to 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.
And importantly, if you are a patient of the Women’s and you 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.
