In order to protect our hospitalized Veterans, their families and our staff, VA Loma Linda Healthcare System is taking the necessary steps to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. As a result, we are implementing the following precautions:

  • Due to the rise in the rate of COVID in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, we had to put on hold our re-expansion plans in phase 1 at the VA Loma Linda Healthcare System.
    • Currently, only Urgent and Emergent procedures and Surgeries are being performed.
    • Face-to-Face encounters are being minimized.
    • Virtual modalities of care, such as VA Video Connect (VVC) and Telephone Appointments, should be used where clinically appropriate.

 

  • Following are the measures we are taking to help keep you, your fellow Veterans and employees safe:
    • Masks or Face Coverings (without exhalation valves) are required for entrance to, and throughout your visit at the VALLHCS.
    • All persons (Veterans & Employees) undergo a mandatory screening process prior to entrance to any VALLHCS building.
    • Unfortunately, due to the community prevalence of COVID-19, only the patient is allowed for appointments at this time.
    • One caregiver may be admitted with the Veteran, if medically necessary.
    • No visitors allowed at this time (including persons under 18 years of age)
    • Seating has been limited in clinics, waiting rooms and common areas to facilitate physical distancing
    • Decals and markers are being placed on the floor to facilitate physical distancing in areas where lines are required – such as the pharmacy, clinics and the canteen.
    • Only 3 people are allowed per elevator car at one time.

 

  • Actions you can take to assist with safeguarding yourself and others at this time
    • If you are having symptoms of COVID-19 on the day of your visit please notify your provider by phone or My HealtheVet prior to arriving.
    • Report to the screeners at entrances any symptoms of COVID-19 you may have been experiencing within the past 14 days.
