COVID-19 Update 5-26-20

Dear families and friends,

Over the past few months, it seems we experience change daily, if not more often. The recommendations and regulations that come to us from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Minnesota and North Dakota Departments of Health change as we learn more about COVID-19. Our teams must frequently learn and train on new procedures and they do so with diligence and determination.

The one thing that has remained constant is the most important – our dedicated staff delivering on our mission to provide quality care to our residents. As we continue to adapt to this new normal, our mission continues to be our guiding light.

We continue to do regular testing at our campuses. Tomorrow, our Moorhead locations will hold another testing event for residents and staff at Eventide on Eighth care center, The Linden senior living apartments and The Fairmont. Considering many individuals have been asymptomatic, yet tested positive, shows how important it is that we continue to test regularly.

The following is an update of active and inactive cases* at our locations:

Eventide Fargo: 2 active residents, 6 active staff, 12 inactive residents and 12 inactive staff in care center; 3 active staff and 0 active residents in senior living apartments.

Eventide Sheyenne Crossings in West Fargo: 1 active resident, 4 active staff, 3 inactive staff in care center; 0 active residents and 3 active staff in senior living apartments.
