Managing COVID at Home

For most people that contract COVID-19, recovery at home is the best care option.

This webpage from the Victorian Department of Health explains how to manage COVID-19 at home.


Visitors only are required to wear a facemask if they are visiting a patient in isolation, or a patient awaiting a respiratory PCR test.

Otherwise, facemasks are optional for visitors.

However, in special circumstances visitors may be asked to wear a facemask if nursing staff deem it necessary.


Visitors to Urgent Care and the Hollands Wing will no longer need to take a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) prior to entering the hospital.

Visitors to a Residential Aged Care facility - Lochiel House and Waratah Lodge  - do still need to take a RAT per the Department of Health guidelines.

This will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
