Updates to outpatient care at Massey due to COVID-19
At VCU Massey Cancer Center we have implemented changes in our clinics to mitigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and keep our patients and medical teams safe.
VCU Massey Cancer Center has resumed limited visitation for hospitalized non-COVID-19 patients, allowing one adult visitor per day, with some restrictions. Our patient care philosophy depends greatly on engaging family and friends to be part of the healing process. We have adopted safety practices that limit the risk of COVID-19 while allowing visitors back.
We want to continue to keep everyone onsite at VCU Massey Cancer Center safe during COVID-19. To do this, we are following the face mask guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and are requiring everyone in our environment to wear a face mask.
Massey researcher develops extremely rapid experimental COVID-19 test to accelerate diagnostic turnaround

Even though he was just appointed director of VCU Massey Cancer Center in December, Robert Winn, M.D., already has become an asset to the African-American faith community in Richmond.
A clinical trial evaluating the efficacy of high-dose intravenous vitamin C (HDIVC) to treat COVID-19 and reduce the need for intensive care was co-developed by a Massey researcher and is underway at the Hunter Holmes Mcguire Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the McGuire Research Institute.
