Positive Resident at Viewcrest

Dear Family and Friends,

Today we were notified that a resident has tested positive for COVID-19. Due to the positive case in our care center, we have begun point-prevalence testing of all staff and residents regardless of vaccination status. This will occur until 2 rounds of testing return with no new positive cases. We are following recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

We have activated our COVID unit. The unit is segregated from the rest of our community. The designated staff that care for this resident will not have physical contact with other non-segregated residents.

MDH requires us to restrict indoor visitation until all testing results return negative. At this time, we can continue Compassionate Care visits.  Resident activities, dining, and doctor appointments will also continue in areas not impacted. We encourage our family and friends to reach out to us to schedule window visits or virtual visits during this time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Tara Adkins, Administrator at 218-279-4203.
