We take all necessary and required measures to protect our residents and staff while providing a safe opportunity for socialization and visitation.
Current guidance allows indoor visits at all times and with all residents in each of our living settings, except for circumstances when visitation is limited due to a high risk of COVID-19 transmission. If such circumstances affect a loved one, family members will be notified.
While visiting, please continue to follow all infection control and prevention measures set forth by the CDC for healthcare facilities. We must continue to limit the risk of disease transmission and keep all residents and employees safe.
- All visitors must sign in, prescreen, wear source-control masks, and perform proper hand hygiene when entering the building.
- We encourage guests to visit within the resident room with the door closed. Guests should stay at least six feet from residents, except the one with whom they are visiting.
- We ask you to enter only the areas of the building required for your visit.
- You may eat in the resident’s room, but we cannot serve meals to families. You may bring in meals and snacks as appropriate for your loved one’s diet. The resident’s door should be closed while visiting and eating together.
- If you need additional chairs or tables for your visit within your loved one’s room, please let us know by email or call 218-998-1500 by Friday and we’ll make those arrangements for you.
Please read the visiting protocols for the care center ahead of time to plan your next visit.
