Current Operating Status

Situation Update

As of Friday, June 12, 2020 3:09 PM PDT

All  VA NCHCS Medical Center facilities are operating on their normal schedules with limited services.  

Beginning Monday, June 8, VA Northern California will begin expanding its in-person appointments for routine care. That said, it is critical we continue to minimize exposure to COVID-19 among our Veteran patients and VA staff. Therefore, VA Northern California Health Care System is taking these steps toward protecting the health and well-being of the Veteran community.

Appointments: We are asking that if you would like an appointment at a VA NorCal facility, please contact our Call Center at 1-800-382-VETS beforehand to discuss appointment options. While there is a limited expansion of services offered to Veterans, we continue to encourage Veterans use phone or video appointments, when possible.

Screening: VA NorCal continues to conduct thorough COVID-19 (coronavirus) screenings at each of our 12 sites of care. We have restricted access to only one or two points of entry at most of our buildings. Near those entries, we have stationed VA personnel who screen each patient, staff, or visitor for symptoms that require further assessment.

Visitor policy: To access a VA NorCal facility, visitors (non-patients) must be both 18 years or older and necessary for the in-person care of a patient (there are a few exceptions which will be made on a case-by-case basis).

For more information on the VA COVID-19 response, please visit VA’s Coronavirus Frequently Asked Questions page. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also continues to provide updates and insight from medical professionals about how to protect you and your family from COVID-19.
