Visitors may be limited at the Queensland Children’s Hospital and Children’s Health Queensland facilities including the Ellen Barron Family Centre, Jacaranda Place, and community clinics, depending on the current Public Health Directions. We recommend you check our latest updates page

To protect the health and safety of patients, staff and other visitors, you should not visit the hospital if you:

- have visited an interstate exposure venue in the last 14 days unless an exemption has been granted for an end of life visit
- have been in an interstate area of concern in the last 14 days or since the identified start date (whichever is shorter), unless they have received a negative COVID-19 test since entering Queensland

On arrival at the Queensland Children’s Hospital, you will be asked a series of questions about your current health. We understand this may cause a short delay, but we appreciate your patience and support in helping us keep everyone at the hospital safe.
