Novel Coronavirus

The Network is working closely with staff and our partner agencies to prevent, identify, and control the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in our settings. 

Our visit requirements have changed

As a precaution, any person who has come from, or transited through, mainland China in the past 14 days, or had contact with someone with coronavirus, should not visit our health care settings. This includes staff, visitors (professional and community), students, and contractors. 

Individuals can resume visits 14 days from departing China, if they:

  • are well
  • have not been in contact with a person infected with coronavirus. 

What you should do if you feel sick

Anyone who develops a fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath within 14 days of travel from China, or contact with a person with confirmed coronavirus, should immediately isolate themselves from other people, and contact their GP or call the healthdirect helpline on 1800 022 222.
