Coronavirus - New guidelines for aged care visits

Published

Following last week’s announcement of restricted visits to aged care facilities, the Department of Health has issued new visitation guidelines for residents and their families and friends.

These guidelines include:

  • limiting visits to a short duration
  • a limit of two visitors per resident, per day
  • limiting the visit to the resident’s room, avoiding communal areas where the risk of virus transmission is higher
  • large groups or social events, entertainment or similar activities will not be permitted.
