Dear Family and Friends,
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Minnesota’s Governor, and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) announced yesterday some relaxation in wearing masks. This is exciting and welcome news. However, MDH is indicating that this news does not change masking or eye protection for nursing home or assisted living residents, staff and visitors. The rules in place last week remains the same at this time. When MDH makes any additional changes which impacts nursing homes or assisted living facilities, we will let you know.
Thank you for your partnership in keeping our care center open for visiting and ending this pandemic. If you have not received the vaccination, we encourage you to connect with your primary health care provider or use the Vaccine Locator map (Vaccine Locations / COVID-19 Updates and Information – State of Minnesota (mn.gov)) to find a vaccine appointment near you.
Renville Health Services continues to routinely test non-vaccinated staff twice a week or weekly. We also test when an employee or resident show signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or has had exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19. As of today, we continue to have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at MOM, PV, or RenVilla. We are following recommendations from the MDH, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Thank you again for helping us fight this COVID-19 virus. Your support, prayers, and caring will not be forgotten. Please follow our Facebook page or our website (www.sfhs.org) for all COVID updates and information on what is happening inside our buildings. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.
