Behind The Scenes: Microbiology team delivers rapid COVID testing for Veterans

Behind the Scenes: Heroes always rise to the occasion and they are always there when we need them the most. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Coronavirus test results came from an outside source and were slow in arriving at the DVAHCS. Dr. Maria Joyce fulfilled a need by driving to Virginia to retrieve our COVID-19 test kits, so that we could provide testing, treatment, and care to those who needed it. Thanks Dr. Joyce and special thanks to the entire DVAHCS Microbiology team! #DVAHCS
