COVID-19 Pandemic Information


To protect Riverina Cancer Care Centre patients and staff from potential exposure to COVID-19 the following measures are in place:

For Patients

As per NSW Health Guidelines and in the interest of protecting patients and staff from COVID-19, all patients are now required to wear a face mask upon entering RCCC.

For a limited period where a patient has not yet acquired their own mask, RCCC will provide a mask upon entry. We request that you attend for your consultation and/or treatment alone. Patients attending for a new consultation or an education session in the chemotherapy unit will be allowed 1 support person only for this appointment.

If you have mobility or cognitive concerns and feel you require a support person outside of this, please call the centre to discuss.


Please do not attend RCCC if:

  1. You have cold/flu symptoms or fever.
  2. You have been in close contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19.

If you have travelled outside of the Riverina in the past 14 days please call to advise RCCC of the location and dates. Public Health advice will determine if you may attend RCCC.

Please advise the RCCC Admin team 6932 1000 if you meet any of the above criteria.

If you have any concerns, discuss with your Oncologist or GP.
