Feeling Ill?

More importantly than VSC services, it’s critical that we all take care of ourselves, and take the proper actions if we are feeling ill, particularly with potential COVID-19 symptoms, which most commonly include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath.

Before going to a clinic, urgent care or emergency room, call your VA medical center. Calling first helps protect you, medical staff and other patients. Ask your VA health care team about the option of care by phone or video instead of an in-person visit. Please also consider postponing any previously scheduled visits to VA facilities if you are feeling unwell.
