In a statement released by the hospital group, these are the measures they are implementing to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Hospital group Netcare has announced that all visiting hours for general wards, ICUs and high-care units have been suspended from Wednesday.

The hospital group says this is a precaution against the spread of COVID-19.

Exceptions have been given to the following wards:

RELATED: COVID-19 cases in SA now at 709

  • Nurseries and neonatal intensive care units (NICUs): only ONE parent at a time is allowed to visit newborns in a nursery or NICU. This is on condition that the parent visiting has had no COVID-19 exposure and accepts that very strict infection prevention controls will be put in place to minimise the risks to their baby and other babies being cared for in these facilities. No grandparents and siblings will be allowed to visit.
  • Paediatrics: Only ONE parent at a time is permitted to live in with an admitted child. This parent is required to have had no COVID-19 exposure and accepts that very strict infection prevention controls will be put in place to minimise the risks to their child and other children being cared for in our paediatric facilities.No grandparents and siblings will be allowed to visit.
  • Gravely ill patients: an exception can be granted by the hospital general manager, as authorised by the regional director, in these instances. A minimal number of visitors will be granted this exception and they will be required to wear a mask.
