Work Status for Employees

Situation Update

As of Wednesday, July 29, 2020 4:16 PM EDT

Director statement regarding reporting for duty:

All VA employees (regardless of building) will be required to enter the facility from the main entrance of Building 106 (nearest the parking garage). Employees at the Dorn campus, CBOCs, and Hampton Street will be asked two screening questions and will have their temperatures taken. If you screen positive, you will be asked to return to your vehicle and to notify your supervisor immediately for appropriate leave approval. Please be advised, all PIV card access has been turned off at the Dorn campus and therefore, when leaving the facility, you will only be able to gain re-entry through Building 106 main entrance.

Screening at Building 106 will be manned 24 hours a day and 7 days a week and CBOCs/Hampton Street during operating hours until further notice. Please plan accordingly if you exit any of the facilities during your duty hours. It is the expectation that all employees will remain cordial and comply with this request.
