MILWAUKEE — Families and friends of veterans at the Milwaukee VA Medical Center now have the chance to make in-person visits.

The VA announced Thursday that effective this Friday, most patients will be able to designate one visitor throughout their stay at the hospital.

Visitors are identified by a colored wristband and must check-in before coming into the hospital. Visitors can pick up a colored wristband at the East Entrance. Those visiting SCI can pick up a wristband at that location.
