Veterans asked to lead communities in social distancing

During the COVID-19 crisis, VA is asking Veterans to lead our communities in practicing social distancing—and to use VA telemedicine for our care and prescriptions. It’s what we need to do to keep our fellow Veterans safe and defeat this virus. Watch this message from Dr. Richard Stone, Executive in Charge of the Veterans Health Administration and a former U.S. Army combat physician. For the latest VA updates on COVID-19, visit www.va.gov/coronavirus.
