At the beginning of April 2020, as concerns about COVID-19 infections increased, VA suspended its in-person medical disability examinations for its compensation and pension (C&P) programs. Since then, VA has gradually resumed in-person C&P exams in locations where it was safe to do so. VA has since expanded these in-person examinations to all locations based upon local COVID-19 risk assessments.
