COVID-19 Policy for V2VME (effective as of Jan. 10, 2023)

Throughout the COVID-19 epidemic, Vet2Vet Maine has followed a policy of adherence to CDC guidelines. In accordance with such CDC guidelines, Vet to Vet Maine recently lifted previous restrictions on in-person visits requiring vaccination and masks. Vet to Vet Maine encourages all who can to get up-to-date vaccinations for COVID-19 and the flu and to adhere to CDC guidelines, especially when dealing with people at greater risk for COVID-19-related illness and death. As an organization that relies on its active network of volunteers, the final decision on whether to visit in-person and/or whether to wear masks indoors or test before visits is left to the individual veterans involved as consenting adults.
