Administrator’s Letter March 2021

Hello Everyone,

Congratulations to all of you that received the second vaccine dose in February! It takes about two weeks to become fully effective. I hope none of you had any symptoms that were too uncomfortable. The obvious question is “Now What?”.  I am personally hoping that the Department of Health relaxes some of the guidelines regarding community dining and going out in the near future, but we are all still in a wait and see status.  If all goes well we will be starting the Social Hall visits Wednesday, March 3rd (call the Front Desk to sign up for a time slot). Keep wearing your masks when you are outside of your apartment, and do your best to socially distance yourselves. Thank you to all who supported the Doughnut fundraiser.  Over 600 doughnuts were made for a total of $482.50.

Administrator’s Letter February 2021

Hello Everyone,

To all of you that participated in the Covid-19 vaccination clinic, Thank You, Thank You, and some more Thank You! Many of you have asked what the total of participation was between residents and staff? The unofficial numbers are 70% of the staff and 85% of the residents. I feel as though that is a significant move to achieving a safer community to live and work in. February 18th is our scheduled day for the second shot, and I am sure we will make that a party environment as well.

So, what do we know? It takes time. It takes time for our bodies to build antibodies and it takes time for the second shot to occur. After the second shot, it takes more time to be immune. I know its not perfect and it isn’t fast, but at least we have something to fight this virus with.

Congratulations to all of us at Saint Ann’s for being in the first 5% of Minnesotans to receive the vaccine!

As Always,

Scott Johnson

Executive Director
