VA Outpatient Clinics to remain open on Friday, June 18

To recognize Juneteenth, the date marking the effective end of slavery in the United States more than two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, President Joseph R. Biden signed a new holiday into law today.

The holiday commemorating the end of slavery is June 19, which falls on a Saturday this year, so it will be observed on a workday. In accordance, most federal agencies will be closed on Friday, June 18.

While some Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center administrative offices will be closed, all outpatient clinics will remain operational on June 18 to ensure veterans have timely access to health care. This decision was made because Veterans are already scheduled that day for medical appointments.

Veterans are strongly encouraged to keep their appointments.
