IMPORTANT UPDATES FROM VA PITTSBURGH
In-person visitation is restricted at this time and outpatients cannot bring anyone to clinic visits or procedures unless they require a support person. A support person is an adult who the patient needs to help manage care during the visit or at home, to assist with communications about the patient’s care, or to serve as a driver for patients under sedation. We screen everyone who enters our facilities for COVID-19 symptoms and limit the number of visitors. We require face coverings. For more information, please see Operating Status. Contact us before you visit: For some needs, we may be able to provide care by phone or video.
COVID-19 Emergency Department care: To ensure we can prioritize treatment for Veterans most in need of emergency COVID-19 care, do not report to our Emergency Department for COVID-19 treatment unless you have trouble breathing or severe symptoms. Do not report to our Emergency Department for COVID-19 treatment/testing if you have mild or no symptoms.
