FORT HOOD, TX — The Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center is screening individuals at clinic entry points this week.

There will be signs posted to direct hospital visitors to screening entry points.

"I want to encourage you to take an active role in helping stop the spread of COVID-19," Darnall commander Col. Richard G. Malish said in the post. "I need you to do just three things: 1) Isolate yourself when sick, 2) use the phone and email to access healthcare, and 3) practice social distancing at all times."

The message says if you are experiencing cough, fever and/or shortness of breath, please call your clinic to reach your team. Do not go to the clinic or the ED.
