Read VA's latest coronavirus information. If you have flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath, call before you visit your local medical center or clinic. If you have an appointment, consider making it a telehealth appointment or call MyVA311 (844-698-2311, press #3 to be connected).
Veterans can also send secure messages to their health care providers via MyhealtheVet, VA’s online patient portal. VA clinicians will evaluate veterans’ symptoms and direct them to the most appropriate providers for further evaluation and treatment. This may include referral to state or local health departments for COVID-19 testing.
VA providers may arrange to convert appointments to video visits, where possible. With VA Video Connect, you can meet providers in virtual medical rooms using the camera on a smartphone, computer or tablet. You and your provider work together to schedule online video appointments.
