Masks required for UVA Health patients, visitors beginning April 20
This change is being made to protect the health of our patients and team members during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Patients and authorized visitors are encouraged to bring their own masks; if they do not have one, they will be provided with a surgical mask. All patients and visitors will continue to be screened for COVID-19 symptoms when entering UVA Health facilities. Any patient that shows symptoms will be given a surgical mask, while visitors that show symptoms will not be permitted to enter.
Anyone with questions can call 434.924.0000. Anyone who believes they may have COVID-19 or been exposed to it should call before traveling to the hospital or to UVA outpatient areas.
