Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Our priority is to protect our patients, staff and visitors by minimising the risk of the coronavirus (COVID-19) being introduced to the Hospital. In order to do this, we have implemented the following restrictions: 

  • If during the past 21 days you have travelled internationally please refrain from entering Wolper Jewish Hospital
    or
  • If you feel unwell, or are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms please refrain from entering Wolper Jewish Hospital
    or
  • If you have come into contact with someone with – or suspected of having- the COVID-19 virus please refrain from entering Wolper Jewish Hospital

Please note: we are limiting patients to having 1 visitor per day for 15 minutes from 3.30-4.30pm. This visitor must be the same person every time. The fewer visitors we have, the lower the risk to all of a COVID-19 infection.
