Veterans Affairs nursing homes are not allowing outside visitors to enter due to coronavirus.

VA nursing homes have adopted a “No Visitor” stance, meaning no outside visitors will be allowed to enter due to COVID-19.

The same applies for all VA Spinal Cord Injury and Disorder Centers nationwide.

VA Secretary Robert Wilkie said “While the COVID-19 risk to average Americans remains low, these common sense measures will help protect some of our most vulnerable patients.”
