Visiting hours are 10am to 8pm
NSW Health continues to focus on providing a safe health service for patients, their families and carers, and staff, while providing kind and compassionate care.
Visitors to Bowral & District Hospital and outpatient clinics are welcome but must wear a mask correctly before entering and while inside a healthcare facility.
Bowral & District Hospital has implemented additional, short-term restrictions in response to a local COVID-19 outbreak to minimise the risk of transmission and ensure the safety of patients and staff . This includes limiting the number of visitors at the bedside at any given time.
There is one nominated visitor per 24 hours for each patient. This excludes Maternity and Paediatrics where 2 nominated visitors are permitted.
All visitors will be screened on entry and must follow the advice of healthcare staff at all times.
If the person you are wishing to visit is currently COVID-19 positive, your request will need to be clinically assessed and some additional restrictions may apply.
Visitors will generally be permitted if they:
• Wear a surgical mask correctly at all times while in the facility
• 12 years of age or older
• Have not tested positive to COVID-19 within the last 10 days
• Have not tested positive to another acute respiratory infection in the last 7 days
• Do not have symptoms of COVID-19 or other acute respiratory infection
• Are not high risk contacts of someone who has COVID-19 in the previous 7 days
• Have not arrived from overseas in the past 7 days
An exemption to any of the above criteria may be permitted on compassionate grounds and on a case by-case basis.
