Director Of Health and Partnership at Northeast Health Wangaratta, David Kidd, says the organisation has made some changes to its policies about visitation.

"The biggest changes are that we can now allow members of a household to visit a patient, whereas before it was only one member from a household."

"The only restriction on that is the size of the room as a consequence that might mean only a certain number of people, but the concierge can help with this."

"With the maternity ward no partners are able to visit with no time restrictions to assist with labour and transferring to other locations such as home."
