There are some restrictions on visiting the Royal Melbourne Hospital due to COVID-19. 

For the latest visiting hours, please check our COVID-19 information page.

Do not visit if:

  • You are unwell
  • You've been in contact with a person who has COVID-19
  • You have been in a COVID-19 hotspot or overseas in the last 14 days

Where possible phone calls and video chat are encouraged between patients and consumers and visitors.

We know these restrictions can be challenging and we understand each family's situation different. For exceptional circumstances we encourage families to speak to the Nurse in Charge before arriving for further advice.

Visitor screening

All visitors will be screened prior to entry at the Royal Melbourne Hospital City Campus. This includes outpatients and patients arriving for surgery. Visitors will be asked a series of health questions, and receive a temperature check.
