There are regular changes to visitor restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic on the Queensland Health website.

Visiting hours

We're flexible about when you can visit people in hospital, but some wards may have set visiting times.

If you plan to visit someone, contact the hospital they're staying in first to see what their visiting rules and hours are before you arrive.

We have information about each hospital’s visiting hours in the list of hospitals below.

What can I bring to hospital?

When you're visiting a person in hospital, you can bring them things like books, magazines and fruit.

Some hospitals don't allow flowers on the wards or other clinical areas. Check with the hospital before you bring or send someone flowers.

Hand hygiene

When you're visiting someone in hospital, make sure you clean your hands using soap and water or a hand sanitiser. You need to do this when you enter or leave a patient's room or other areas of the hospital.

If you're unwell

Please don't visit anyone in hospital if you have a cough, cold, diarrhoea, vomiting or any other infectious condition.
