***Coronavirus Screening at VA***

March 10, 2020

Madison VA to Screen All Patients, Visitors

MADISON, Wis. — While the Centers for Disease Control still considers COVID-19 to be a low threat to the general American public, the William S. Middleton Memorial Hospital is paying special attention to it.

As part of this process, everyone who enters the campus will be pre-screened at the main entrance from 5:45 AM to 7:00 PM. All other doors will be locked. This may lengthen entry times, so patients are advised to allow for that when arriving for their appointments.

The screening consists of three questions:
1. Do you have a fever or worsening cough or flu-like symptoms?
2. Have you traveled to China, Japan, Italy, Iran or South Korea in the last 14 days?
3. Have you been in close contact with someone, including health care workers, confirmed to have the coronavirus disease?

Per CDC guidance and VA protocols, individuals known to be at risk for a COVID-19 infection are immediately isolated to prevent potential spread to others.

Veterans and staff are encouraged to take every day preventative actions to avoid being exposed to the virus:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Stay home if you are sick or becoming sick.
• Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
• If you have symptoms or have been exposed to someone with symptoms, call the VA before going to the facility.

Vernon County Veterans this is being put out by the Lafayette Co. Veterans Service Office.

Last year my office hosted a Disabled Veteran Pheasant Hunt, which was sponsored by the non-profit Pheasants Forever. We are doing it again this year. Last year I primarily sent disabled veterans from my county, Lafayette. This year I would like to have veterans from SW Wisconsin. As of right now, the date of the planned hunt is March 14 or 15th. Everything is paid for, shotguns and shells will be provided (if needed), and lunch is provided. I just need some names. The location of the hunt is Tanglewood Ranch and Hunt Club. I have 6 slots left. Let me know if you are interested or have any disabled veterans who are interested.

The Blue Water Navy (BWN) Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019 (PL 116-23) extended the presumption of herbicide exposure, such as Agent Orange, to Veterans who served in the offshore waters of the Republic of Vietnam between Jan. 9, 1962 and May 7, 1975.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, Veterans who served as far as 12 nautical miles from the shore of Vietnam, or who had service in the Korean Demilitarized Zone, are presumed to have been exposed to herbicides, such as Agent Orange, and may be entitled to service connection for any of the 14 conditions related to herbicide exposure.

Diseases related to Agent Orange

We believe that contact with Agent Orange, an herbicide used to clear trees and plants during the Vietnam War, likely causes several illnesses. We refer to these as Agent Orange presumptive diseases. Find out if you can get disability compensation or benefits if you had contact with Agent Orange while serving in the military and now have one or more of the illnesses listed below.

Cancers we believe are caused by contact with Agent Orange

Chronic B-cell leukemia: A type of cancer that affects your white blood cells (cells in your body’s immune system that help to fight off illnesses and infections)

Hodgkin’s disease: A type of cancer that causes your lymph nodes, liver, and spleen to get bigger and your red blood cells to decrease (called anemia)

Multiple myeloma: A type of cancer that affects your plasma cells (white blood cells made in your bone marrow that help to fight infection)

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma: A group of cancers that affect the lymph glands and other lymphatic tissue (a part of your immune system that helps to fight infection and illness)
Prostate cancer: Cancer of the prostate (the gland in men that helps to make semen)

Respiratory cancers (including lung cancer): Cancers of the organs involved in breathing (including the lungs, larynx, trachea, and bronchus)

Soft tissue sarcomas (other than osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma, or mesothelioma): Different types of cancers in body tissues such as muscle, fat, blood and lymph vessels, and connective tissues

Other illnesses we believe are caused by contact with Agent Orange

AL amyloidosis: A rare illness that happens when an abnormal protein (called amyloid) builds up in your body’s tissues, nerves, or organs (like your heart, kidneys, or liver) and causes damage over time

Chloracne (or other types of acneiform disease like it): A skin condition that happens soon after contact with chemicals and looks like acne often seen in teenagers. Under our rating regulations, it must be at least 10% disabling within 1 year of contact with herbicides.

Diabetes mellitus type 2: An illness that happens when your body is unable to properly use insulin (a hormone that turns blood glucose, or sugar, into energy), leading to high blood sugar levels

Ischemic heart disease: A type of heart disease that happens when your heart doesn’t get enough blood (and the oxygen the blood carries). It often causes chest pain or discomfort.
Parkinson’s disease: An illness of the nervous system (the network of nerves and fibers that send messages between your brain and spinal cord and other areas of your body) that affects your muscles and movement—and gets worse over time

Peripheral neuropathy, early onset: An illness of the nervous system that causes numbness, tingling, and weakness. Under our rating regulations, it must be at least 10% disabling within 1 year of contact with herbicides.

Porphyria cutanea tarda: A rare illness that can make your liver stop working the way it should and can cause your skin to thin and blister when you’re out in the sun. Under VA’s rating regulations, it must be at least 10% disabling within 1 year of contact with herbicides.

If you have an illness you believe is caused by contact with Agent Orange—and you don’t see it listed above
You can still file a claim for disability compensation.

You’ll need to:

Provide scientific and medical evidence that the condition is related to exposure to Agent Orange, or
Show that the problem started during—or got worse because of—your military service

Scientific proof may include an article from a medical journal or a published research study.

Please contact our office at Sauk County Veterans Service Office at 608-355-3260 or your County Veterans Service Office.
