Situation Update

As of Friday, April 10, 2020 10:58 AM EDT


The CDC and VA are committed to reducing the spread of the flu and COVID-19. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath – please stay home and contact your primary care provider/team. Tell them about how you are feeling and any recent travel you or members of your household have taken. They will be able to discuss your appointment options and answer any questions you may have.

To minimize any potential exposure, we’ve limited access to our facilities to the main entrance for Veterans, staff and select visitors, where screening questions will be asked.  As a precautionary measure, general community  and group visits are temporarily suspended, including to the Community Living Center.  Your cooperation and help is appreciated as we work to maximize the health and safety of the 50 Veterans who live at our facility, the nearly 35,000 Veterans who receive their care here, our staff and for those who visit.
