Virginia Hospital Center and COVID-19

What is Virginia Hospital Center doing to prepare?

Patient, staff and community safety is a top priority and Virginia Hospital Center is taking proactive measures to respond to concerns of a public health crisis with the following steps:

A multidisciplinary team developed a response plan and is conducting preparedness activities. The team is constantly updating efforts to reflect information from lead organizations:

  • Following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
  • Collaborating with local, state and regional organizations, including the Virginia Department of Health and Arlington County Public Health Division, to prepare and coordinate efforts with hospitals and providers.
  • Following screening protocols and providing treatment when necessary.

What should you do to stay healthy?

Information published by the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) recommend you take the usual precautions for avoiding respiratory viruses:

  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with someone who is sick.

What should you do if you feel ill and need to seek treatment?

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a flu-like respiratory illness that begins with a cough and fever. If you have a fever and cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical services from your primary care provider.
