Have you travelled to a COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days?
If so, you may be subject to restrictions when entering health services in NSW.
NSW Health has advised new guidelines to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in health facilities.
Visitors will not be able to enter NSW Health facilities (such as hospitals) if they:
- Have returned from overseas in the past 14 days.
- Have had close contact with a person with confirmed or suspected COVID-19.
- Have visited a COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days.
- Are feeling unwell with any flu-like symptoms.
Visitors to NSW Health facilities will be screened prior to entry and will have their temperature checked. More information is available here.
Many general practices in Northern NSW are implementing similar infection prevention and control procedures to protect the health and wellbeing of all community members. People who have travelled in the last 14 days, or those who are planning to travel, are recommended to contact their general practice to find out what screening and access guidelines the practice has implemented.
