As the number of COVID-19 cases in Europe increases, we may have to make some adjustments within our medical treatment facilities. Priority is always given to acute and emergent care and COVID-19 screening, and maximizing the use of virtual health encounters. We remain committed to maintaining the health and readiness of our beneficiaries, but changes could impact some routine appointments. Patients with appointments to address routine complaints of several weeks-months duration could be asked to adjust the timing of their appointments. If that happens, they will be contacted in advance by their Primary Care Team.
In an effort to minimize exposure risk and spread of COVID-19, we are also limiting points of entry to our clinics and we will be screening for COVID-19 risk indicators. Please fully cooperate with the clinic staff conducting the screenings and checkups. They are doing this to protect all Soldiers, family members and staff from the spread of infection.
We are committed to maintaining the overall health and Readiness of our military community while prioritizing acute and emergent care. We apologize for any inconvenience and will do our best to maximize access to care. If you have questions or need more information, please contact your primary care provider.
