To help manage the spread of coronavirus, Darling Downs Health is restricting visitors to Toowoomba Hospital.
Novel coronavirus is a highly contagious respiratory illness, with symptoms of fever, coughing, sore throat, fatigue and shortness of breath.
Commencing today, until further notice, there will be a limit of one visitor per patient, per day to Toowoomba Hospital. While visitors play an important role in a patient’s recovery, many hospital patients are more vulnerable to disease and complications and need to be protected from exposure to germs.
Technology is an innovative way to stay in touch, and people can stay connected with their loved ones in hospital through phone, text, email, social media or video-chat. Facetime is the new real time, and there are no visiting restrictions on Facetime.
Individual exceptions will be considered. Please contact the Nurse Unit Manager regarding your family’s situation. It is imperative that if anyone in the community is feeling unwell, that they do not visit anyone in the Toowoomba Hospital.
Anyone who is concerned about their health can call 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) to speak with a registered nurse, speak with their GP or alternatively take the COVID-19 quiz ….
