COVID-19 Operational Unit Testing Request COVID-19 Screening


SEP 25

We are pleased to announce that NSA Hampton Roads and Naval Medical Center Portsmouth have moved to HPCON Bravo; We know that this has been a subject of news reports, so we wanted to take a moment to let our patients know what this means for them.

In order to ensure that we remain able to provide care when and where it is needed, we will still require patients and staff to wear masks inside the medical center and maintain appropriate social distancing, and everyone who comes into the facility will still undergo screening.

In addition, the one visitor policy will remain in effect for now. Please see our website for more details. Remember to look after each other, take care of yourself, and keep your and your loved ones safe.

AUG 24

Effective August 24, 2020, visitors, patients, or staff who come to the facility unmasked will not be permitted to enter the facility. If staff try to enter unmasked, they will be sent to their car, or home as required, to retrieve a mask. If visitors and patients present unmasked, they will be offered a mask; if they are unable to wear a mask, they will be offered a face shield. If they refuse both, they will not be permitted to enter without written documentation from a health care provider waiving the use of a mask and/or face shield. If a patient is in duress or presenting with an emergency condition, they will be directed to the Emergency Room. In that scenario, the above masking requirement will not apply.
