  • have travelled outside WA and are required to self-quarantine for 14 days
  • have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 and are therefore required to self-quarantine for 14 days.

Any visitor the hospital who does not comply with these requirements will be asked to leave the hospital immediately.

Visiting a confirmed or suspect COVID patient

No visitors are allowed to visit a confirmed or suspect COVID-19 patient.

There may be exceptional or compassionate individual circumstances under which these visiting restrictions may be reconsidered by the Chief Executive.

Hospital visits on compassionate/medical grounds

If you have been granted WA POL permission to visit a patient in a hospital on compassionate grounds within your quarantine period, please note: this is not approval to enter the hospital.

You must seek approval to enter the specified hospital from the health service administration. To begin this process, please contact the SMHS COVID Team on 0401 454 309 or email SMHS.COVID19@health.wa.gov.au prior to attending the hospital.

Why? Precautions need to be put in place to protect staff and patients while you attend the hospital.

It is an offence to fail to follow the directions stipulated in your exemption. WA Police have the power to enforce these restrictions and you can be fined up to $50,000.
