Two visitors allowed per patient: MoH

Each hospital patient is allowed two visitors outside of the carer starting today, the Ministry of Health (MoH) said in a statement yesterday.

The latest hospital policies released also stated that visits from children under the age of 12 remains prohibited.

For those with the BruHealth app, only visitors carrying green or yellow code with a negative swab result in the past 24 hours are allowed entry. Meanwhile, those without the BruHealth app or proof of a negative swab test are required to screen for COVID-19 at designated swab stations using personal antigen rapid test (ART) kits.

To keep the risk of infection at bay and to ensure patients receive sufficient rest and timely care and treatment, visitors are only allowed in cold zone wards. Holding and isolation wards as well as those on lockdown are prohibited.
