Weed Army Community Hospital (WACH) has implemented the following initiatives in support of limiting the spread of COVID-19. WACH has established a 24 hours Nurse Staffed Hotline to answer questions and concerns related to COVID-19. All personnel entering WACH, Javier Villaneuva Troop Medical Clinic (JVTMC), Mary Walker, Embedded Behavioral Health and Shuttleworth Dental Clinic are screened in accordance with CDC recommended guidelines and have their temperature taken at all designed entry points. Social distancing is adhered throughout the hospital. WACH has maintained transparency with the FICA community through its organizational Facebook, internal and external web portals, post marquees and weekly radio updates with the Garrison and NTC Command Teams. We continuously monitor inventory of Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE) such as (gloves, mask, and gowns etc.)
