St. William’s Living Center COVID-19 Situation Update October 19, 2020

Dear St. William’s Living Center and McCornell Court Residents, Friends, and Families:
On Sunday, October 19th we were made aware of a positive case of COVID-19 in one of our staff. This staff person was under a quarantine due to an exposure to another COVID-19 positive person. This staff person did not work in the facility while infectious, so this staff person did not cause an exposure to other staff or residents.
We currently have three active staff cases and no active resident cases of COVID-19.
We will continue to test all staff and residents weekly until we have had no new cases for 14 days in a row. To resume indoor visits, we must have no new COVID-19 cases for at least 14 days and two rounds of negative tests for all staff and residents.
We encourage loved ones to communicate with our residents by phone or video chat, if possible. You may call our activity department at 218-338-1010 to set up a time to schedule a video meeting or outdoor visit with a resident.
The Minnesota Department of Health has set up a free hotline for anyone who has questions about Coronavirus (COVID-19). Call the MDH hotline at: 1-651-201-3920. We will continue to provide updates to you to keep you informed of our ongoing work. Help us keep family and loved ones informed by visiting our website: https://www.stwilliamslivingcenter.com/.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: Tim Kelly, Administrator at 218-338-1001; Lori Roers, Director of Nursing at 218-338-1009.

All future updates related to COVID-19 positive cases will be posted to our website at www.stwilliamslivingcenter.com and will be emailed. Please let me know if you would like to be added to an email list.

Sincerely,

Tim Kelly, Administrator
