Published on March 13, 2020
Essentia Health is following guidelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to limit the potential transmission of COVID-19 in our facilities. At our long term care and assisted living facilities, we are postponing gatherings and events, screening all visitors and limiting access.
Maintaining the health, wellness and safety of our senior care residents is our top priority. We have plans in place and can respond quickly and efficiently should the virus affect a resident, caregiver or visitor.
For the protection of our residents, caregivers and family, the following restrictions are being implemented:
These restrictions are in effect at Essentia Health-Homestead in Deer River; Essentia Health-Northern Pines Care Center in Aurora; and Essentia Health-Virginia Care Center in Virginia.
We are committed to safeguarding the health and wellness of residents and preventing the spread of illness.
As this situation evolves, the latest information will be posted here on the Essentia Health website..
