Protect local patients and staff

Effective immediately from Friday June 26, Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) will not be granting visitor access to anyone who has travelled to Melbourne in the last 14 days.

With the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Melbourne MLHD are taking necessary precautions to continue in its vigilance with its COVID-19 response.

Additional screening requirements for visitors will now be put in place across all Murrumbidgee facilities to assist with protecting vulnerable patients.

The screening also applies to staff, who will be required to be symptom-free for 14 days before returning to work, if they have travelled to Melbourne or affected parts of Victoria.

"Anyone who has come from Melbourne, including NSW residents, should not attend aged care facilities, hospitals or other settings with vulnerable people for a period of 14 days," MLHD Chief Executive Jill Ludford said.
