Attention Veterans

Veterans, if you have flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath, call you healthcare provider before you visit your local medical center or clinic. In addition to calling first, consider using virtual care options such as telehealth or My HealtheVet Secure Messaging. Visitors, if you do not feel well, please postpone your visit. Read VA’s latest information on the new coronavirus at https://www.va.gov/coronavirus/

Beginning June 1, 2020, limited face to face services for routine care will be available in primary care, mental health and outpatient specialty services.  This includes services at the Community Based Outpatient Centers (CBOCs) in Athens, Cambridge, Lancaster, Marietta, Portsmouth, Wilmington.

To enhance safety, many waiting rooms have been modified to support social distancing and sneeze shields have been installed in many areas to reduce respiratory droplet exposure. We will continue to closely monitor coronavirus activity in the local community and the supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) and coronavirus testing materials to determine when we can safely expand services further. 

Masks must be worn at all times while on the VA campus when social distancing is not possible.  The VA will provide a mask to Veterans who do not have one available to them.  Be aware that wearing a mask does not replace the practice of hand hygiene and every day preventative actions to avoid exposure to the virus:  

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick or becoming sick.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol

Inpatient units continue to be closed to visitors until further notice

 

Moving forward together, we will continue to provide exceptional care to our Veterans.  Your trust in VA is paramount. Safe care is our mission and our continuing commitment to you.
