VA National Cemeteries Loosen COVID Restrictions
VA National Cemeteries No Longer Restricting Gathering Sizes at Committal and Memorial Services
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) National Cemetery Administration (NCA) today announced it would lift all restrictions on gathering sizes at committal and memorial services in VA national cemeteries starting on Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
Earlier this week, the NCA announced it had adjusted its rules for visitors and staff members in accordance with the CDC's new guidance, Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People. Fully vaccinated persons are no longer required to wear masks and physically distance themselves while at a national cemetery.
Consistent with the new CDC guidance, NCA still requires persons who are not fully vaccinated to practice the safety procedures recommended by the CDC – such as wearing face coverings and maintaining physical distancing – while visiting a cemetery or attending a service.
For more information, please visit the NCA website, https://wwww.cem.va.gov or contact your local national cemetery.
