Patients and residents can currently have one visitor each day, for up to one hour.
To further reduce the risk of infection, patients are asked to limit the number of different visitors they have throughout their stay to a maximum of five people, from the same household.
Visiting hours are between 10.00 am – 8.00 pm (unless collecting a patient who is being discharged).

Visitors who have attended an exposure site in Victoria, during an exposure period, are not permitted to attend Cabrini until they have completed DHHS directives regarding testing and/or quarantining. Please refer to the DHHS list of public exposure sites for more details about these locations.
Visitors who have returned from an interstate hotspot are also not permitted to attend Cabrini until they have completed DHHS directives regarding testing and/or quarantining, in line with Victoria’s travel permit system. Please refer to the Victorian Travel Permit System website for more details about locations, zone classifications and DHHS directives.
Visitors who are a close contact of someone who has attended an exposure site or hotspot (locally, interstate or internationally), are asked not to attend Cabrini until their close contact returns a negative COVID-19 test result.
Cabrini is following all DHHS guidelines for screening patients and visitors across our sites, including additional screening in response to new exposure sites in Victoria.
Visitors may be required to line up at our entrances, to allow screening measures to take place. We appreciate your understanding as we work through these processes to keep our patients, staff and community safe.
All visitors need to adhere to Cabrini’s screening processes and infection control requirements, including providing details for contact tracing purposes, temperature screening, wearing a single-use mask and social distancing.
Visitors to Cabrini will have their temperature taken and be asked to sign-in, either via an iPad device or with one of our patient services staff. Visitors will need to wear a sticker while onsite, to show they have signed in.
If you are attending Cabrini regularly, you may like to download the Sine Pro app on your mobile device, so you can sign in more efficiently. You can find instructions about this here.
Visitors must also comply with the density and social distancing guidelines in shared or publicly accessible places.
