UNIVERSAL MASKING

The current requirement at ALL Western North Carolina VA health Care System facilities is that all persons medically able to wear a face covering must wear one while in our facilities. This is for Veteran and Staff safety.

Our facility remains partially open for in-person or virtual service – some health services are available, and some are not.

VIRTUAL CARE FIRST
Many of our services are beginning to see patients in person, but telphone and video appointments are still predominant, as they offer a great deal of safety and convenience during the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact your primary care of specialty care team to see what options are available for you.
