22 November 2021: Updated Visitation Guidelines

From 22 November 2021, an inpatient ward patient may pre-register 2 visitors for the duration of their admission, with 1 visitor at the patient's beside at any one time for up to 30 minutes, and up to 2 visits each day. This is dependant on vaccination status, and can be reviewed for specific groups of patients on a case-by-case basis. For critically ill patients, up to 5 pre-designated visitors are allowed, with a maximum of 2 visitors at the patient's bedside at any one time.

Visiting guidelines for the inpatient wards are as follows:

Fully vaccinated patients or patients who are medically ineligible* for vaccination Patients who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated
Fully vaccinated visitors or visitors who are medically ineligible* for vaccination ​2 pre-registered visitors, with 1 visitor at bedside at any one time, and up to 2 visits each day. ​Only critically ill patients may have up to 5 pre-registered visitors, with 2 visitors at bedside at any one time.

*Visitors who are medically ineligible for vaccination must provide acceptable proof of their medical status.

All eligible visitors must produce a self-paid, valid* negative COVID-19 test result obtained within the last 24 hours prior to visiting the wards, unless they:

  • Are a COVID-19 patient who has recovered within the last 270 days with a valid PET exemption memo
  • Are a fully vaccinated COVID-19 patient who has recovered more than 270 days ago

*For fully vaccinated visitors, or visitors who are medically ineligible for vaccination and able to produce acceptable proof of their medical status, a self-paid Antigen Rapid Test (ART) self-administered or supervised by MOH-approved providers (including Quick Test Centres) is acceptable.
