NIHRACS has moved to Tier 1 of the COVID Response Plan due to the reduction in reported COVID-19 positive cases. This means that visitors to inpatients will not need to do a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT).
Restrictions still apply for people who:
• Have travelled from overseas within the past 7 days
• Are a close household contact of a person with COVID-19
• Are awaiting COVID-19 test results
• Have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days
There are no changes to visitor restrictions for residential aged care. This means RATs for all visitors prior to visiting aged care residents.
All visitors and patients are still required to wear a face mask whilst in NIHRACS.
