Information about COVID-19

St Vincent's is working closely with NSW Health to help keep our patients, visitors and staff safe. Our hospital remains open, with the appropriate safeguards and containment precautions in place.


Information for visitors

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that patients are only visited by:

their partner
guardian or 
nominated significant other

And please limit visitors to ONE at a time. Consider staying in touch with loved ones via phone and/or face-time.

Please do not visit if you have a fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath; or have been overseas in the last 14 days.

NOTE: St Vincent's is an adult tertiary hospital and is not fully equipped to test and treat children for COVID-19. Tests on children can be performed by your GP or local children's hospital.
