St. William’s Living Center COVID-19 Situation Update October 24, 2020

Dear St. William’s Living Center and McCornell Court Residents, Friends, and Families:

This week we tested all residents and staff of St. William’s Living Center and McCornell Court.  We had one staff person test positive during this round of testing; fortunately, this staff person was already on quarantine due to a known exposure.  This means that the employee that tested positive did not work in the facility while infectious and therefore did not have any contact with staff or residents while infectious. 

No residents have tested positive for COVID-19 through any of the rounds of testing. 

We currently have two active staff cases and no active resident cases of COVID-19.

On Monday and Tuesday this week we will again test all staff and residents for COVID-19. 

We are very grateful to our staff who have done a fantastic job following infection control procedures and containing the spread of the virus during this outbreak. 

We are as eager as residents and families to reopen for indoor visitation.  We will continue to work with the Minnesota Department of Health to determine when we can reopen to visitors.  

The Minnesota Department of Health has set up a free hotline for anyone who has questions about 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.

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.

Sincerely,

Tim Kelly, Administrator
