‘Avoid unnecessary visits to hospitals and clinics’

Western Cape Government Health is adjusting the in-hospital visiting protocol to limit the growing risk around the possible transmission of Covid-19.

This is in line with the principles of social distancing to limit interaction and so slowing and stopping the spread of Covid-19. Adjustments during visiting times may include reduced visiting times, one visitor per patient, no patient rotation and no under 12 year olds.

“We ask the public for their support in respecting our new visitation protocol as these are put into place to ensure everyone’s safety. Visitors are asked to contact the hospital in advance to enquire about its visiting times,” said Maret Lesch, a spokesperson for the department.

“When visiting any of our facilities, visitors can expect to be asked a number of questions before entry will be permitted. This is to ensure that no visitor matching the case definition of Covid-19 or displaying flu-like symptoms enter the facility for visitation. We also need the public to help us to slow the spread of Covid-19 by practising social distancing and by limiting interaction with other people where possible,” she adds. People are encouraged to stay away from public spaces, avoid social and religious gatherings, and keep one to two metres away from people with flu-like illness.

“Remember to practise good hand hygiene and cough etiquette. If you are using public transport, please open the windows for ventilation and cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your arm.”
