As at 5pm Friday 26 November the following visitor arrangements apply:
Two visitors per patient at a time as long as the visitors are at least 12 years of age and are fully vaccinated with a TGA-approved COVID-19 vaccine.
You must show evidence of your vaccination on entry to the facility and you must wear a surgical mask for the duration of the visit.
In situations where a visitor is not vaccinated or is partially vaccinated hospitals will apply a risk assessment to allow a local exemption on a case-by-case basis.
You must not visit if you have been to case locations in NSW or interstate affected areas in the past 14 days.
You also must not visit if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, you are a close contact of a confirmed case (or are within your isolation period), live in a household with a person who is currently isolating, or if you are waiting for a COVID-19 test result.
The Mid North Coast Local Health District acknowledges that the wellbeing and safety of patients is enhanced by support from family, carers and close friends.
All MNCLHD hospitals now have flexible visiting times based on individual patient needs. However, it’s important that patients are able to have adequate rest, if you wish to visit between the hours of 8pm and 7am it would be appreciated if you consult with nursing staff prior to visiting.
Everyone who enters our hospitals and healthcare facilities needs to undergo health screening. We have QR code registration at each site and you will be asked a series of questions such as whether you have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, your recent travel and whether you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, you will also have your temperature checked.
Use your mobile device’s camera or a QR code app.
Visitors from NSW case locations (exposure sites) will not be permitted into our health facilities although anyone needing medical assistance will be seen, regardless of where they have travelled from.
Help reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection by staying 1.5 metres away from other people where possible and avoiding close contact with people you do not live with.
Patients and visitors are required to wear a face mask .
Masks should not be worn by toddlers under 2 years of age and babies, as they are a choking and suffocation risk.
Children 12 years and under are exempt but are encouraged to wear masks where practicable.
Visit NSW Gov to learn how to correctly put on, wear, and dispose of your face mask.
