Is it Safe to Come to the ER during the COVID Crisis?

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, do not be afraid to come to the hospital for immediate care. Our Emergency Rooms are open for all patients and remain a safe place to seek care.

During this time of COVID-19, Inova has implemented additional procedures at all facilities, based on CDC guidelines, to protect the safety of our patients, team members and community.

Delaying the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of a potential emergency condition can put you at greater risk – particularly for those with symptoms of stroke and heart attack.

Respiratory Illness: Know Where to Go

If you have a respiratory illness or concern, please visit your local ER or one of Inova’s Urgent Care locations that has been designated as a Respiratory Illness Clinic.
