COVID-19 Screening Points
To help protect our patients, their families and our staff we have established COVID-19 Screening Points at key locations across our hospitals, healthcare centres and all other facilities to identify anyone who may require testing for COVID-19.
This is part of statewide efforts, led by NSW Health, to increase surveillance and the identification of anyone who may require testing for COVID-19. It will also increase current layers of protection for patients, their families and staff.
What will happen at Screening Points?
All people will need to be screened before being allowed past a COVID-19 Screening Point. This includes staff, patients and visitors.
Screening will involve questions initially.
Temperature testing will also be introduced in stages across our facilities.
All those cleared for entry past a COVID-19 Screening Point will be issued a coloured sticker – there will be a different coloured sticker each day to allow for monitoring.
People who are not cleared will be asked to attend a COVID-19 Clinic for testing.
These measures are designed to keep you, our most vulnerable patients and the frontline staff who care for them safe during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you for helping us to protect our community.
