Face Covering Requirement at VA

As communities begin the transition to relax limitations that helped slow the spread of COVID-19, the CAVHCS is working on expanding services at our medical centers and clinics. These efforts will align with federal, state and local guidance and will focus on the continued safety of our employees and patients.

Current layers of protection for Veterans and employees include:

  • All individuals should wear appropriate face masks (cloth, surgical/generic) while on our campuses and in our facilities; health care providers will wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • No Visitations; virtual visits are encouraged
  • Entry point screenings
  • Expanded testing
  • Cleaning of high-touch surfaces in our facilities
  • Increased physical distancing in common areas like waiting rooms, Canteen and retail stores

Veterans, if you have flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath, call the CAVHCS CARE CENTER at 866-601-1079 or 800-214-8387 before you visit. We strongly recommend that you call before coming to our campuses for any reason. If you must come to the Perry Hill campus in Montgomery, you may enter through the Emergency Department. If you are visiting the Tuskegee campus, you may enter through Building 83 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Building 2 after business hours.

We continue to offer virtual access to care options. Learn more at www.connectedcare.va.gov/  

In the next few weeks, we will resume elective procedures. Patients will be contacted directly by their provider to schedule the procedure.

Moving forward together, we will provide updated information as it becomes available. Safe care is our mission and our continuing commitment to you.
