Visitor restrictions from Thursday 20 January 2022

Following a directive from the Queensland Chief Health Officer Mater will be implementing visitor restrictions across all Queensland facilities. From Thursday 20 January,  patients are allowed a maximum of two visitors at any one time.

In Emergency Departments and COVID-19 wards only one support person is permitted if the patient is a child or requires significant assistance. No other visitors are allowed.

No vaccine, no visit 

Mater is complying with the State Government directive requiring visitors to public and private hospitals to be fully vaccinated (including specialist clinics and medical suites). All visitors to Mater hospitals will need to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccination status before being permitted to enter our healthcare sites.

This can be done through the State Government’s Check In Qld app when you enter one of our hospitals. Some exemptions apply to this directive for visitors entering hospitals in cases of childbirth, end-of-life care and emergency medical care.
