Temporary accident and emergency service closures

The Barossa Hills Fleurieu Local Health Network has temporarily closed some of its accident and emergency services, where they are co-located with aged care facilities, to decrease the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and protect aged care residents in the Barossa Hills Fleurieu region. This is a proactive approach that is based on recent advice from the Commonwealth Government’s Australian Health Protection Principal Committee about how to best care for the elderly and individuals with co-morbidities or low immunity.

The temporary closure currently applies to accident and emergency services at:

  • Strathalbyn and District Health Service
  • Eudunda Hospital
  • Mount Pleasant District Hospital

Members of the public needing to access accident and emergency services in these areas can go to:

  • Gawler Health Service
  • Kapunda Hospital
  • Tanunda War Memorial Hospital
  • Angaston District Hospital
  • Modbury Hospital
  • Mount Barker District Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital
