Changes to Access Salem VAMC & Visitor Information

The Salem VA Medical Center (SVAMC) and its community-based outpatient clinics are actively screening everyone at entrances to ensure that we are maintaining as safe an environment as possible. Please allow for the additional screening time if you have an in-person appointment. Thank you for your cooperation and attention to the following information as we work together to end the spread of COVID-19.

Everyone seeking access to the SVAMC campus will be directed to use the West Gate (near Arnold Burton School). This includes all public transportation. The gate is open 24/7 to include Weekends/Holidays.

Everyone entering the campus will be screened and must wear a face covering at all times while at the facility. We encourage patients to bring their own face covering if they have one but one will provide one if necessary. Patients who have previously diagnosed clinical conditions which prevent them from wearing a face covering should consult their provider.
