Salem, VA – The VA Medical Center in Salem closed its doors temporarily on Monday and Tuesday due to several staff members coming down with the flu.

They released the following statement:

"As flu cases continue to be reported in our community, we had some cases of flu reported among staff who work in or around the OR.  As a measure to contain the spread of flu and protect our patients and staff, all scheduled OR cases were cancelled for Monday and Tuesday.  The OR is expected to return to normal operations today.  We had no emergency cases during this period of time.  We continue to encourage all Veterans, staff, and residents in the community to receive an annual seasonal flu vaccine as a key measure in prevention."
