The local Riverland Mallee Coorong Local Health Network(RMCLHN) has made the call to temporally close inpatient admissions at the Barmera Hospital.

The RMCLHN say the call was made to better support the Covid-19 response, adding that only two admissions were made at the Hospital this week.

As outlined last night via social media, the RMCLHN say "During this time, general inpatient admissions will be transferred to Renmark Hospital or Berri Hospital according to clinical needs, and patients requiring emergency medical attention will continue to be taken via SAAS to the Emergency Department at Riverland General Hospital in Berri". 

In April of 2020 emergency services at the site were temporarily closed with no indication when they may return.
