VA Appointment Information when visiting their facilities
Veterans Administration Services
Questions and procedures you can expect when visiting the VA.
Based on my pre-appointment phone call the questions will be:
- Do you have a fever of 100.4 or higher?
- Do you have any unexplained coughs?
- Have you been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19?
- How do you feel today?
Below are the general procedures.
- The entrances are limited so be sure to look out for the signs directing you where to enter. It may different than you are used to.
- From your car, you’ll be asked a handful of questions about any symptoms you might be having. This is to keep anyone who may be sick out of the facility. Once you answer the questions, you’ll be given an armband and will need to wear it throughout your stay.
- We expect everyone in our facility to wear a mask. If you don’t have one, the screener will provide you one when you arrive.
- We currently have a no visitor policy. Only patients with a scheduled appointment are permitted in the facility. If you have someone with you, they are welcome to wait in the car, but we want to be sure you know before you arrive that a visitor will not be able to come to the building with you.
- Due to our limited waiting space, we ask you to not arrive any more than 30 minutes before your appointment. You will not be able to park at Nashville until after 6 AM and York 7 AM so please do not arrive before those times.
All the satellite clinics are closed and all services are being done at the main hospitals.
