July 28th – An Update from the VA

Dept of Veterans Affairs logo

As of Friday, July 24, 2020 8:09 AM MDT

The VA has a comprehensive plan in place to protect the health of everyone who receives care or works at one of our facilities. Using an abundance of caution, all VA medical facilities are implementing screening measures for signs of respiratory illness and exposure to COVID-19. This protocol will be in place until further notice. Onsite, we will use standardized screening questions at strategic entry points. As many of you may have experienced, we have largely gone to virtual care. Please use MyHealtheVet for routine matters. Please do not come into any of our sites unless your provider has specifically asked you to do so or if you need emergency care from the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center. We are allowing one visitor per day for hospitalized Veterans. We ask that you continue to only bring medically necessary caregivers for your outpatient appointments. We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this time. More information.
