As of today, we have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our care center. Our care center continues to test staff weekly. 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 are bringing in the New Year with new hope and excitement. We have administered our first doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in our care center. Our next vaccine clinic will be on February 1st. Geri Patregnani, who has been eagerly awaiting the COVID-19 vaccine says, “I feel an obligation to do what I can to protect the individuals around me. I want to have protection for myself and I trust in science”.
We have prepared a Frequently Asked Questions to help you understand why the vaccine is so important in defeating COVID-19. You can find this along with the Moderna Fact Sheet, on our website at sfhs.org/resources/covid-19/. If you have any other concerns or questions, please contact Bobbie Radaich, DON/Infection Control Specialist.
We will continue following our infection prevention and control practices along with the latest guidance from MDH and CDC regarding safe visiting for our residents. As of today, our care center plans to open for indoor visits the week of January 11th. We will continue regular communication with our residents, friends and family on our COVID response, visitation guidelines and testing results.
