Visitors from Victoria restricted at Queensland hospitals | 28 May 2021

As of 1am AEST on Friday, 28 May 2021, Queensland has declared all of Victoria a COVID-19 hotspot. As a result, anyone who has been in Victoria in the past 14 days cannot enter any Children’s Health Queensland facility, including the Queensland Children’s Hospital, even if they have received a negative COVID-19 test.

For more information, visit the Queensland Health website.

Visitor restrictions and face mask requirements removed | 15 April 2021

In line with the easing of COVID-19 restrictions across Queensland from 6am on Thursday, 15 April, visitor restrictions at the Queensland Children’s Hospital and other Children’s Health Queensland facilities across Greater Brisbane, including Jacaranda Place, Ellen Barron Family Centre and community clinics have been removed. Face masks are also no longer required to enter these facilities. Face masks will remain available at the Queensland Children’s Hospital screening stations on request if families wish to wear them.

QR code check-in system for staff and visitor registration | 17 September 2020

A QR code check-in system is now available at the Queensland Children’s Hospital to help with COVID-19 contact tracing if needed.

The contactless system allows anyone entering the hospital to quickly register their details by using the camera on their smart phone to scan a unique QR code. If hospital visitors do not have a smart phone, iPads are available on Level 2 for check-in.

The system will be rolled out across all other Children’s Health Queensland facilities by late-September.

Check-in is not mandatory, but staff and visitors are strongly encouraged to use the simple check-in system to help keep Children’s Health Queensland facilities and the community COVID-safe.

Health screening now in place at the Queensland Children’s Hospital | 30 March 2020

All visitors to the Queensland Children’s Hospital are now required to undergo public health screening before entering the building.

Screening stations have been established at the Stanley Street and Raymond Terrace entrances to the hospital. The screening includes a series of questions about you and your child’s current health as well as a temperature check by a registered nurse.

The public health screenings follow the strict visitor restrictions introduced last week.

We understand this may cause a short delay but we appreciate your patience and support in helping us keep everyone in the hospital safe.
