Visiting Western Health

Restrictions on visitors

Western Health is committed to taking all measures possible to protect our patients, staff, volunteers and visitors as we face the challenge of coronavirus spreading throughout our community.

These measures include the rules around visitors to all Western Health sites including the emergency departments and outpatient clinics.

The aim of these measures is to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission at Western Health.
