As always, the protection of our patients and staff is our highest priority.
The Queensland Government has declared Greater Melbourne an Interstate Area of Concern from 11 May. Effective immediately we are banned from allowing anyone into our hospital if they have been in Greater Melbourne in the last 14 days, or since 11 May 2021, whichever period is shorter.
Anyone affected by these restrictions will, however, be permitted if they obtain a negative COVID-19 test result in Queensland.
The Local Government Areas included in the Greater Melbourne region are listed on the Victorian Government website: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/coronavirus-covidsafe-settings.

Smoking is banned at all Queensland public and private hospitals and health facilities, and for five metres beyond their boundaries.
The legislation, which was introduced on January 1, 2015, is the Health Legislation Amendment Bill 2014 to Part 8 of the Amendment of Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998.
These no smoking laws apply at all times, and to all staff and patient residential areas on healthcare facility land, and include the use of all smoking products, including regular cigarettes and devices commonly known as electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). The laws cover:
- Land on which any Queensland Health Hospital and Health Service provides health services, including hospitals, community health centres, health clinics, rehabilitation centres and residential aged care facilities
- Land on which a private health facility (private hospitals and day hospitals) provides services.
The laws are enforced by Queensland Health environmental health officers and public facility authorised officers.
Patients, staff or visitors smoking in smoke-free areas may be given a warning to stop smoking, or be asked to move beyond the five metre smoke-free buffer if they wish to continue smoking.
On-the-spot fines apply for breaches of the tobacco laws.
