RICHMOND, Va. -- VCU Health announced on Friday that patients and visitors will be required to wear masks to outpatient appointments.

Patients will be asked to wear face masks that cover the nose and mouth upon entry.

For those who arrive without a mask of their own, a disposable Level 1 medical face mask will be provided at points of entry.

Additionally, VCU Health's virtual clinic, VCU Health Anywhere, now includes an urgent clinic for adults with mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19. Patients can use the VCU Health Anywhere app [link.mediaoutreach.meltwater.com] to be seen quickly by a VCU Health provider and assess symptoms.

The virtual clinic is open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
