Staff Member Tests Positive for COVID-19


Dear Friends and Family,

We have an additional staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19 during our routine testing on Tuesday April 13th. Our care center is now in point prevalence testing (PPT). Due to being in PPT, we are testing staff and residents weekly and are closed to general indoor visitation. We have also implemented a precautionary quarantine of some area of the facility while we continue to test weekly. Essential Caregivers and Compassionate care visitors are still able to continue with visitation.  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 will be conducting entire-site testing of staff and residents again on Tuesday, April 20th. Once we have two full weeks of all negative tests for staff and residents, we will be able to open the doors to general visitation and remove quarantine measures due to the positive case.

Please follow our Facebook page (@Guardian Angels Health and Rehabilitation Center) or our website ( for all COVID updates and information on what is happening inside our care center. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Shane P. Roche, Administrator, at 218-231-8106 if you have any questions or concerns.
