The Victorian Government has updated coronavirus restrictions, including restrictions to visitors allowed at hospitals.

From 31 December 2020, this means that two visitors are permitted per inpatient for up to one hour per day.

Visitors can attend at the same, or different times, during the day.

There are some exemptions to the one hour time limit. 

People in the following categories will not be bound by the one-hour time limit, however the limit of two visitors must still be adhered to:

  • A parent or guardian or temporary carer of a patient in the hospital who is under 18 years 
  • A carer of a patient with a disability  A partner or support person of a pregnant patient 
  • A support person for a patient coming into the emergency department of a hospital 
  • A support person for someone attending an outpatient appointment
  • A person who is providing support to a patient receiving palliative or end-of-life care in hospital

We still ask that outpatients come to their specialist clinic, day therapy, cancer imaging or radiotherapy appointments with one support person only. 

If you have visited any of the listed public exposure sites please do not visit Peter Mac and get tested and self-isolate.

Visitors should check the list of exposure sites before each visit, so please continue checking with the Department of Health and Human Services website for updates.
