The Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center is permitting pre-scheduled visitation for Veterans in their longer-term care Community Living Center as well as their fourth floor (4 East) inpatient ward beginning Monday, March 22, 2021.   Visits may be scheduled for Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. CT with the following restrictions:

  • Scheduled visits must be pre-arranged with the applicable nursing staff.
  • One visitor at a time per Veteran/resident.
  • Duration of visits will be no more than one hour.
  • No visitors under the age of 18.
  • Visitors must be screened prior to the visit for fever, any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or for known exposure to someone with COVID-19.
  • Visitor must wear a face mask during visit and maintain social distancing.

Visitors should not come if they are not feeling well, have had any COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms, or have been exposed to anyone that has COVID-19

To schedule a visit, please call the following applicable numbers between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday:

  • For a resident of the Community Living Center call (906) 774 – 3300, Extension
  • For an inpatient on the 4 East inpatient ward call (906) 774 – 3300, Extension 32631

VA medical centers nationwide restricted visitors to the Community Living Centers and inpatient units one year ago to minimize the risk of COVID-19 exposure to Veterans residing as inpatients.
