    Only the following exemptions may include one support person:

    • a patient of the hospital who is a child under the age of 18; or
    • a patient receiving end of life care; or
    • a patient with a disability; or
    • a patient being provided pregnancy or maternity related care; or
    • ·other patients for emergency or other compassionate grounds at the discretion of the General Manager.

    Following an update from Queensland Health at 9 am Monday 24 August, our hospitals have been moved from a low to a moderate risk rating for the purpose of PPE use, which means that masks must be worn by staff, patients, doctors, students, volunteers and the above categories of visitors.

    Visitors may wear their own cloth mask, however if you do not have one, a surgical mask will be provided for your use in our hospital. Information on wearing a mask can be found on the Department of Health website.
