DAV is monitoring news associated with the evolving Coronavirus situation and guidance from our partners at VA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We take the safety and health of our volunteers and the veterans we serve very seriously.
Review guidelines the VA has provided regarding our volunteer efforts. All DAV HSCs are required to read this document entirely. The second page has specific guidance for our transportation network. You may work with your facilities to access the resources and training you need to comply with these critical instructions.
Different facilities may provide unique guidance based on the impact to local communities. We are aware of at least one instance where our program has been suspended. We should all work proactively and cooperatively with our VA partners to adhere to evolving procedures as the situation evolves.
We hope you find this information helpful. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as additional information comes available.
Thanks for all you do each day to help meet the needs of those we serve.
