Dear Families and Friends,
Today, June 12, marks three months since we closed our doors to visitors and implemented strict restrictions due to COVID-19. While we are far from being back to “normal,” we are pleased to be in a different place. All of our North Dakota locations are in Phase 1 of the ND Smart Restart plan. Although we still cannot allow visitors inside our buildings, we can now facilitate outdoor visits. You can find more information for visiting your loved one here. Please keep in mind that we must follow strict protocol during these scheduled visits, including wearing masks, physical distancing and hand hygiene.
We are happy to begin the process of reuniting families. I know it has been a challenging three months and not being able to see your loved ones has made it even more difficult. At this time, we can only allow outdoor visits in North Dakota. Minnesota restrictions continue, per guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health. We will keep you informed as to when our North Dakota locations move into other phases and Minnesota eases restrictions.
