Indoor Visiting Guidelines


We are excited to welcome you back into our care center for indoor visits! Please note that indoor visitation is dictated by county positivity and active cases among our residents and staff. There can be no new onset of COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days and facility cannot currently be conducting outbreak testing.  COVID-19 county positivity rates cannot rise above 10% while hosting indoor visits.

For your planning purposes, please follow these strict guidelines while visiting:

  • All indoor visits MUST be scheduled in 24 hours in advance. Weekend visits should be scheduled before _12:00__pm on the Friday prior to visit.  
    • Visitation Hours:  Monday through Friday 10am to 3pm Saturday and Sunday 930am-noon. Evening appointments might be available also. Inquire about them when calling to schedule.
    • Call/Email (contact info) Mary Olander 218-927-5510/ email will not be checked over the weekend.
  • All visitors must provide a NEGATIVE COVID test within 2-3 days prior to the visit.
  • Visitors must be screened prior to entering the care center for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
  • All visits must be conducted using social distancing.
  • Visitors must wear a mask covering both nose and mouth while in the care center. Residents must wear a surgical mask during the visit.
  • Proper hand hygiene must occur (use of alcohol-based hand rub) throughout visit.
  • Visits may be restricted to a designated area within the building. Visit will be held in the beauty shop. Please enter through the activity door, inside the white fence area.
  • Physical contact (hugs, kisses, handshakes, etc.) continues to be restricted to protect everyone from potential virus transmission.
  • Visitors will be limited to two visitors per resident; the total number of visitors in the building will be limited; and the duration of visits will be limited.
  • Visitors must adhere to all infection control policies (ICP) and staff should provide monitoring for those who may have difficulty adhering to ICP
  • Cleaning/disinfecting high frequency touched surfaces and designated visitation areas must occur after each visit.
  • All items brought to the visit must be left with staff for disinfection and not passed to the resident during the visit.

Our ability to resume visitation would not have been possible without the incredible commitment and dedication of our staff, who have worked tirelessly to manage the risks of COVID-19 and providing compassionate care and support to our residents at a time when they are physically separated by their loved ones. We know that you too, have made sacrifices during this incredibly difficult time and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
