This pandemic is impacting a lot of institutions, work schedules and supply chains. How will veterans and their access to health care be impacted?

How are you being impacted?

You've asked a question where the answer will change every minute, as new information becomes available.

Nothing to do with your question directly, but it is having its impact. My daughter's high school classes for at least next week have just been canceled. I have a VA appointment next week that may wind up being canceled by either me or VA. The appointment is certainly not important. It is my routine annual eye exam and I have experienced no changes in my vision over the past year. Things are happening, probably for all of us. I read in the Military Times that a number of PCS orders are being changed.

Just a followup to our previous posts, SSG Carlos M.. School classes here has been cancelled for the remainder of the year. Everything in on line for the rest of the term.

SGT Robert Pryor I don’t think our schools are going back either.

Unfortunately I went without care for 5 months for migraines and scheduled foot surgery.
My mental health became very fragile.
My foot actually got almost twice as worse as it was 2 years ago.
My migraines are actually because of unstable vertebrae's in my neck.
Which I had a prescription to get an MRI which did not happen .
I went out of network and was able to get an MRI and neurological appointment within a week.
Which is how I found out why I had such horrible migraines that I would pass out.
And now I may need surgery in my neck and I'm getting shots in my spine to help alleviate the pain until I can see a neurosurgeon.
my community care is not very good because I do not have transportation.
I do not understand how my healthcare is working.
One of the big obstacles I am facing currently is getting transportation with approved community Care.
