Additional considerations

In the interests of protecting the safety of patients within our facilities, St John of God Health Care hospitals in Western Australia will only be permit visitors to enter a Western Australian St John of God Hospital if they can demonstrate they:

  • have quarantined in WA for a period of 14 days, and 
  • have had a negative COVID-19 test result within the last 3 days of that quarantine period.

Visitors will not be given an exemption to visit St John of God Health Care hospitals in Western Australia during their quarantine period.  

Visitors who are quarantining should not be residing with family members who are visiting the hospital.

In the absence of visiting in person, we will work closely with patients and loved ones to facilitate interaction via video communications mediums (Skype, Facetime etc.)

You should not visit the hospital if you:

  • have travelled outside of Western Australia within 14 days of the planned visit
  • have recently come into contact with a person who has a confirmed case of COVID-19.
