Central Coast Local Health District has made changes to its visiting arrangements at Emergency Departments (ED) as it battles the spread of COVID-19.

Anyone who presents at Wyong or Gosford EDs will be asked to arrive solo, with family and friends asked not to accompany the person inside the hospital.

In cases where children need to be presented, the District asks that only one parent or guardian accompany them.

A spokesperson for the District said the changes were made to help combat the Spread of COVID-19 and that anyone with specific requirements can discuss them to ED reception staff on arrival.
