Oregon Veterans Homes Covid-19 Update (as of July 29)

Even with residents and staff receiving the vaccine and with Governor Brown re-opening Oregon, the Homes are still required to follow strict guidelines from both federal and state entities.
As we continue to protect and treat all those entrusted to our care during these extraordinary times, we remain committed to providing information through regular updates and are expanding options to keep you up to date through additional communication tools like this weekly update..
The count is cumulative since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic on March 11, 2020.

Both Oregon Veterans’ Homes have completed the vaccination clinics with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine from Consonus Healthcare. Receiving the vaccine was elective and those who gave consent received the vaccine. The Homes have and will continue to offer the vaccine to all new residents.
Admission at both Homes is dependent upon several factors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Home regarding the current status of admissions. Eligibility includes veterans, their spouses, and those who have lost a child to military service, commonly known as Gold Star Parents.
“Nothing matters more to us than the health and safety of our honored residents and dedicated staff,” said Kelly Fitzpatrick, Director of the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs, which owns the Homes. “We will do everything in our power to protect the vulnerable population that has been entrusted to us. These new admission guidelines reflect the highest standards of science, safety, and responsible health care protocol.”
