Hospital introduces tighter visiting restrictions
A local hospital has introduced tighter visiting restrictions in response to increasing numbers of active coronavirus cases.
The restrictions at Brisbane Waters Private Hospital in Woy Woy were introduced from July 25.
Hospital visiting hours will now be 11am to 7pm to align with the Local Health District.
Only two visitors will be allowed in a 24-hour period, and visitors over 12 must wear masks and practice hand hygiene.
They will not be allowed if they have tested positive within the last 10 days or are awaiting results.
They will not be allowed if they have another acute respiratory infection in the last seven days, or any symptoms, or are high risk contacts of someone who has had Covid-19 in the last 14 days.
They will not be allowed if they do not wear a surgical mask correctly on entry and for the duration of the visit.
