Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the community and a current outbreak within the hospital, visiting at Mayo University Hospital is limited at this time to compassionate grounds and to those visiting the elderly.
Visits are by appointment only and hospital staff will confirm appointments and times with the nominated support person/visitor.
The nominated support person/visitor must complete a COVID-19 screening checklist and follow the public health guidance, including wearing a FFP2 surgical face mask and performing good hand hygiene regularly whilst visiting.
In line with national guidance on visiting*, the nominated support person/visitor will be asked to produce their EU Digital COVID Certificate or HSE COVID-19 Vaccination Record or other proof of immunity at the Hospital Entrance.
There are separate arrangements in place for access to the maternity department for nominated support partners, in line with national guidance.
