Message from the Chief Executive
|*** ALERT ***|
Today Victoria marked 28 days of no new COVID-19 cases.
In line with this achievement, we are further reducing visitor restrictions across most areas of the health service, effective Monday 30 November.
Visitor restrictions have been challenging for everyone. They have meant difficult conversations and disappointed people, but have been a necessary step in keeping our patients, visitors and you, safe through the pandemic.
Thank you for the care and compassion you have put into these hard conversations, and for your ongoing dedication to those we care for.
Visitor guidelines will be updated on our website from Monday morning.
