COVID 19 – Current Visiting Information

Current visiting arrangements at SHDH

All people entering Swan Hill District Health, including Acute, Sub Acute, Logan Lodge and Jacaranda Lodge will be temperature tested, screened and have some details recorded at entry.

All visitors must wear a mask (aged over 12 years, unless a legal exemption is present). You are encouraged to continue to wear your own mask during your visit.

All visitors must maintain 1.5m between themselves and anyone they don’t live with. Physical distancing remains an important COVID-safe priority. This may limit the number of visitors that can visit at one time.

All visitors must wash their hands or use hand sanitiser when entering the health service, after using lifts, holding railings and every time they enter and exit the patient’s room.

VISITING HOURS

Main Hospital: 12 – 6pm daily

Midwifery: 10am – 1pm & 3 – 6pm daily
(partners not subject to time limit)

Aged care: 2 – 6pm daily

Physical distancing must be able to be maintained when having an appointment with us and therefore we continue to ask people if you do not need to bring a carer/support person to an outpatient appointment that you avoid doing so at this time. If you will be bringing a carer/support person with you to an appointment please discuss this when booking your appointment.
