Restrictions to visitors at Mater hospitals

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, patients and the community all Mater hospitals have placed restrictions on visitors to minimise the exposure risk to COVID-19.

Patients may each have a maximum of one visitor or support person at a time.

We are also implementing the following restrictions:

  • Hospitals will be restricting children under the age of 16 years from visiting
  • If you are unwell or have flu like symptoms which include a fever or a cough you may not visit.
  • If you have been asked to isolate or self-quarantine as a result of COVID-19 you may not visit.
  • We recommend that elderly people and people with compromised immune systems or chronic medical conditions avoid visiting family and friends in hospital.

We thank you for your assistance and understanding during this time.
