Dayton VA Barring All Visitors To Its Nursing Home

The Dayton Veterans Administration is closing its Community Living Center to all outside visitors.

Community Living Centers are VA nursing homes. The VA says Center residents tend to be older and have complex underlying health conditions - making them particularly vulnerable to infection.

The Center is also suspending all new admissions and transfers from other facilities, and all staff are being screened daily before coming into contact with residents.

Visitor exceptions are being made only for residents in hospice care, who are entering the final stages of their lives.
