  • KACH implements safety, health measures due to COVID increase

    By Keller Army Community Hospital

    In response to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the Greater West Point area and on post, and with guidance from the West Point Department of Public Health, Keller Army Community Hospital has implemented some precautionary measures — that began Monday.
    These measures are being implemented out of an abundance of caution for the safety, health and well-being of Keller staff, patients and beneficiaries.
    The measures include:
    1. Limiting the Keller Dining Facility (DFAC) to KACH staff and patients. This will reduce the number of people coming in-and-out of the facility, facilitate social distancing by reducing the number of people in the DFAC at any given time and we believe the reduction in numbers will help us prevent the spread of illness.
