Information about our COVID-19 Protection Actions

Actions we take when a resident/tenant is diagnosed positive for COVID-19:

  • Notify the family- we notify families of negative results as well
  • Quarantine the individual in an isolated area and/or quarantined to their room
  • Work directly with the Minnesota Department of Health to guide our next steps in monitoring and testing residents and staff, as well as infection control to prevent the spread of the virus
  • Send a communication out to residents and families about the case

Actions we take when a staff case is diagnosed positive for COVID-19:

  • Staff self-quarantines at home
  • Work directly with the Minnesota Department of Health to guide our next steps in monitoring and testing residents and staff, as well as infection control to prevent the spread of the virus
  • Allow staff to return to work when staff have been fever-free without use of medication for at least 72-hours, have improved respiratory symptoms, and it has been at least 10 days since their first symptoms first appeared
