Fort Rucker clinic confirms COVID-19 cases among staff members


FORT RUCKER, Ala. (WDHN) — Lyster Army Health Clinic at Fort Rucker reported that some of its staff members have contracted COVID-19.

The clinic said the staff members were exposed to the virus in the local community and not the clinic itself.

Public officials have finished contact tracing and notified those who may have been around the individuals.

“We are taking every precaution to safeguard the health of our beneficiaries,” the clinic wrote. “Face masks and temperature checks are required for entry into the clinic. Virtual Medical In and Out Processing has been implemented to reduce traffic inside the clinic. Prescription refills and drop-offs are available using the drive-thru pharmacy lines. Lyster Army Health Clinic command has maintained a strong proactive stance in the battle against COVID-19.”

WDHN did call Lyster for a specific number, but they told us to call back during business hours to speak to their public affairs representative.
