New Medical Facility Access Measures in National Capital Region


On March 12, military hospitals and clinics in the National Capital Region adopted new entry measures. These changes will help keep patients and staff safe in the National Capital Region.

You can expect separate entry points for patients and staff. Some facilities have outside tents to screen patients for symptoms of COVID-19. This lets providers safely screen and minimize risk to others.
