This resource blog was established in response to the evolving needs of humans in the local New River Valley area who are experiencing challenges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. As time permits, resources are being compiled by veterinary social workers at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine.
Please contact your primary human health care and veterinary health care providers for your and your animal’s specific situations. If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go to your nearest emergency room or call 911.
Per the waiver from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), social work services for the Veterinary Teaching Hospital will continue during COVID-19 using telehealth and remote communications technologies.
