Safety. Health. Wellbeing.

Please know that maintaining the safety, health and wellbeing of all community members is our number-one priority! We are committed to keeping you up to date on any other changes due to the Minnesota Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control requirements with regard to COVID-19.

Current COVID-19 Situation

Communications Update

Our COVID-19 situation: As of September 25, 2020, the total number of positive test results among staff is two, as reported last week. We have no new positive cases of COVID-19 among staff or residents across campus at this time. 

We have no positive cases of COVID-19 among residents at this time. As we follow testing protocol required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, we have advanced our testing procedures of all residents and staff within this area of campus. Additional testing will take place on Monday, September 28th.

We are doing everything we can to minimize the spread of this virus within our setting. We continue our aggressive proactive infection control measures and screening procedures of residents and staff. In addition, we continue to follow all recommended guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and the Minnesota Department of Health to protect our residents and staff from this virus. We are working in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Health to ensure we are taking all appropriate steps at this time.
