Covid-19: Important Update on Visitor Restrictions

Latest News 25 March 2020 | In line with the Government’s directive that we are to escalate to COVID-19 Alert Level 4 from midnight tonight, all DHB facilities will be adopting a no visitors policy with only a few exceptions.

The decision about whether exceptional circumstances apply is at the Charge Nurse Manager’s or another lead clinician’s discretion. Exceptional circumstances include, a nominated person who is supporting the patient through end of life care or a parent/guardian who is supporting a child.

In all circumstances the visitor will be screened before they are allowed to enter the care environment.
