Situation Update

As of Wednesday, September 15, 2021 10:51 AM CDT

Due to the continued rise of COVID-19 cases in our surrounding community, the Iron Mountain VA Medical Center will temporarily restrict visitation in our Community Living Center and Inpatient Unit effective Tuesday, September 14th, 2021.  Visitors will be limited to those supporting direct patient care activities or visiting under exigent circumstances.
Precautionary measures taken in August will continue to limit access to Veterans with appointments and their caregivers.  Companions will not be allowed to enter at this time.
Masking in the facility is still required and we do ask that individuals who enter the facility physically distance as able.
