COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information for Vets
What should Veterans do?
Any Veteran with symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath should immediately contact their local VA facility. VA urges Veterans to call before visiting. Call 937-268-6511 and press option 3 for Primary Care from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. After hours (4:00 pm – 8:00 am), call 888-838-6446.
Upon arriving at VA, all patients will be screened for flu-like symptoms before they enter in order to protect other patients and staff. A VA health care professional will assist you with next steps once this screening process is complete. At this time, VA is urging all visitors who do not feel well to please postpone their visits to VA facilities.
