COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Screening Precautions in Effect – NO VISITORS To protect our patients, guests, and caregivers, Beckley VAMC is continuing to take steps to curb the spread of any respiratory illness in our facility and community-based outpatient clinics.
On our main campus and at our community-based outpatient clinics, we are limiting only Veterans through our Emergency Department Entrance. All other doors will be secured like we do on weekends/holidays.
As of MARCH 23, 2020, no guests, no visitors, no accompaniment, unless there is an extenuating circumstance or required assistance, will be allowed to enter the medical center or community-based outpatient clinics.
Precautionary screening will be at the entrance with basic questions to help ensure individuals who might spread the COVID-19 virus get the care they need while not exposing patients, staff and other guests. Thank you, Veterans and visitors, for your cooperation. Remember to wash hands often, avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
Veterans, if you have flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath, call us BEFORE your visit at (304) 255-2121, choose #3, or ext. 8003. In addition to calling first, consider using virtual care options such as telehealth or My HealtheVet Secure Messaging.
