Update on Visits
On Friday, July 10, the Minnesota Department of Health issued updated guidance regarding visitors to care facilities for Essential Caregivers. At Northfield Retirement Community, we understand how vital it is for families and loved ones to reconnect in person. We also must prioritize the safety of our community during the evolving and changing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud of how well our residents and their families have responded during these difficult circumstances to keep our community as safe as possible.
We are currently working on developing our own policies and procedures, as aligned with recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health, regarding Essential Caregivers and will share updates with our extended community as soon as these are finalized. As indicated by the Department of Health, we will publish our strategy no later than Wednesday, July 22. Your ongoing patience and support is greatly appreciated.
