With the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions, the number of visitors permitted in south western Sydney public hospitals has been increased from one to two per patient.
One support person per patient will continue in outpatient units and birthing suites due to physical distancing requirements in these smaller areas.
Families and friends are encouraged to continue using technology to keep in touch with their loved ones so they do not have to come into the hospital.
We thank patients and their families for their support of the visiting measures, which are aimed to protect our staff, patients and community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The families of patients who are critically ill or receiving palliative care can contact their health professionals for further advice on hospital visiting.
