WCH Latest News – COVID-19 Information

COVID-19

The WCH is currently restricting visitor numbers and kindly ask that you limit visitors to one, and that siblings and other children do not attend at this time. This is to protect our patients and staff.

We also remind the community that visitors should not be entering the WCH if they are unwell.

We know this restriction can be challenging and we understand each family's situation is different.

For exceptional circumstances we encourage families to speak to their child's nursing team for further advice.

We thank you for your understanding.

WCH COVID-19 Clinic

The Women's and Children's Hospital COVID-19 testing clinic is open 7 days a week from 9 am until 8 pm, and is located in Ground Floor outpatients (Kermode St Entrance).

If you have travelled anywhere overseas in the past 14 days and have COVID-19 symptoms (especially fever or cough), seek testing at an official COVID-19 clinic or alternatively contact your GP (call ahead so your GP is prepared and aware of your travel history) and isolate yourself.

If you have NOT travelled overseas recently, but have symptoms or are feeling unwell, visit your usual health care provider as you normally would. Avoid contact with others if you are unwell.

COVID-19 Clinic locations

Specialised SA Health-operated COVID-19 clinics are now located at the following locations:

  • Women's and Children's Hospital (WCH) Family Testing Clinic
  • Royal Adelaide Hospital
  • Flinders Medical Centre
  • Lyell McEwin Hospital

These clinics are only for people who have symptoms (especially fever or cough) AND have recently returned from overseas OR have had contact with a known COVID-19 case.

If you are a health care worker/residential aged care worker you are welcome to attend for assessment and testing.

If you are worried but well, contact the National Coronavirus Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.
