Information regarding COVID-19 changes every day both on a local and a national level. Even here at St Ann’s things differ from day to day depending on who is being tested or if someone does not feel well.
Here is the current information of where we are at as of this Friday, May 29th. As of this morning we have one resident that is currently testing positive and hopefully they will get a negative reading soon. There has been a lot of discussion on many levels of the accuracy of testing and who should be tested. Be assured the medical community and the Minnesota Department of Health are giving us tremendous support and they are helping us in every way possible to keep you safe. We have had no new cases in the last several weeks.
Regarding total cases here at St. Ann’s: Since April 3rd when the first positive case was confirmed through today, 29 residents have tested positive for COVID-19. Of the 29 cases, 18 have recovered and sadly 11 residents have died. We know many of you are grieving the passing of your friends and neighbors. We are working on getting support in to help everyone with all the changes that have happened because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Like all other assisted living facilities in the state, we are still on the “stay at home” order and no visitors. As soon as the regulations and guidelines change, we will let you know. Thank you for your understanding.
The St. Ann’s Team
