In line with the easing of many community restrictions, the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District hospital visitor policy has been reviewed, with changes coming into effect from today Monday 15 June 2020. 

The new visiting hours will apply at all ISLHD hospital sites during the COVID-19 pandemic while community transmissions of the virus remain low. COVID-19 visitor screening and temperature checking at hospital entrances will continue. The names and phone numbers of all visitors will also be recorded on entry for COVID-19 contact tracing, if required.

The changes affect the General wards, Paediatric and Neonatal unit, Maternity and Birthing, and other wards.
