March 20th, 2020
While there are confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Minnesota there are no cases at Rosewood Senior Living. We are taking steps now to prevent this illness from entering our facility and to be positioned to respond quickly and effectively should someone, staff or resident, in our facility be impacted.
We are closely monitoring the latest information from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and we are working with state and local public health and emergency preparedness officials to strengthen our preparation for a possible outbreak of Coronavirus.
Currently, Rosewood has adapted many ways to ensure utmost safety of our residents, staff and community at large. Currently we are:
- restricting access to the facility to only essential healthcare personnel upon passing a health screening
- on a case-by-case basis, during end of life situations, visitors will be allowed into the facility upon passing a health screening
- deliveries and mail will be received outside of the facility
- practicing social distancing of residents by temporarily suspending communal dining
- postponing in-person activities, we are actively working on establishing video conferencing within our facility.
- in addition to our normal monitoring of residents; taking each resident's temperature at least twice daily and washing all resident's hands often but especially before meals
- sanitizing and cleaning surfaces at every shift
- our nursing staff have postponed all non-medically necessary appointments for resident's and are utilizing e-visits when applicable
What you can do to support your family member:
- write your family member a letter often
- face-time with them, call them
- send them photos
- let them know you care

According to Minnesota Department of Health, there are a total of 935 positive cases in Minnesota. Of those cases, only 4 have been confirmed in Isanti County (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/situation.html). Rosewood will continue to follow Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Recently, the CDC has reported that a significant portion of the individuals who have the Coronavirus lack symptoms and that people who do eventually develop symptoms can transmit the virus to others before showing any symptoms. Due to this new information, the CDC has recommended wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where community-based transmission may occur. The U.S. Surgeon General shows a quick 45 second video on how to make a relatively simple face mask out of ordinary household items as an additional voluntary public health measure to slow the spread of the Coronavirus (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html). Per CDC's newest recommendations, Rosewood currently requires all staff on all shifts to wear cloth face coverings throughout the entirety of their shift(s) and have been provided with a homemade cloth face mask. Rosewood will continue to strive to protect our residents, staff and community at large from Coronavirus.
