Visitations to Houston VA are limited.

All Veterans should call your VA if you have symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath before going to any of our VA facilities. Calling first helps us protect you, medical staff, and other patients. 

For the safety of all Veterans and staff, Houston VA requires all who enter our buildings to wear face coverings. Face coverings are normally cloth, scarves, or bandannas. Virtually any piece of fabric or material can be used as a face covering. The face covering must cover the mouth and nose, fit snugly, and allow for breathing without restriction. We know that Harris County and a number of surrounding counties have recommended face coverings for all who are out in public. This is now mandatory at our Houston VA and CBOCs as well.

Houston VA has been and will continue to test our symptomatic inpatients for COVID-19.  Veterans who are at home experiencing symptoms are encouraged to call their primary care doctor or email them through myhealthetvet for assistance.  Testing is available for outpatients in the community through many local drive-through sites.

We are doing most patient care via phone, VA Video Connect, or MyHealtheVet.
