COVID-19 Update 6-2-20

Dear families and friends,

As we continue to post these updates, we provide you the numbers we track within our organization. Please note that our numbers differ from those on the North Dakota Health site, health.nd.gov. We have been advocating for current long term care numbers to be reported on the site and changes have been made, but they may not match the numbers you will find in our reports. Until recently, residents and staff were lumped in one aggregate number, not accounting for recoveries, deaths, discharges or employees that left employment.

The cases reported on the North Dakota Health site are considered active if a resident or staff member have tested positive, but are no longer counted as an active case after 10 days. The North Dakota Department of Health is reporting recovered patients using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) time-based strategy, which classifies COVID-19 patients as recovered 10 days after their first positive COVID-19 test. Eventide is following the more thorough and stringent CDC test-based strategy, which classifies residents as recovered after two consecutive negative tests.

Regular testing continues at our campuses and many of our North Dakota locations have testing events scheduled throughout June. We are working to schedule another testing date for our Moorhead locations this week. We have learned through experience how crucial it is to conduct frequent testing as our North Dakota facilities have managed to get to low cases or zero cases of COVID-19 due to regular testing.

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

Eventide Fargo Care Center: 2 active residents, 4 active staff.

Eventide Fargo Senior Living Apartments: 0 active residents, 2 active staff.

Eventide Sheyenne Crossings Care Center in West Fargo: 0 active residents, 1 active staff.

Eventide Sheyenne Crossings Senior Living Apartments: 0 active residents, 3 active staff.

Eventide on Eighth Care Center in Moorhead: 21 active residents, 27 active staff.

The Linden at Eventide on Eighth Senior Living Apartments: 1 active resident, 0 staff cases.

Eventide Fairmont in Moorhead: 0 active residents, 2 active staff.

Eventide Jamestown Care Center: 0 active residents, 2 active staff.

The Heights at Eventide Jamestown Senior Living Apartments: No cases.

Eventide Heartland Care Center in Devils Lake: No cases.

Eventide Heartland Courts in Devils Lake: No Cases

Eventide Downtown Care Center in Devils Lake: No cases.

Eventide Lake Country Manor Basic Care in Devils Lake: No cases.

Sincerely,

Jon Riewer, President and CEO

COVID-19 Update 5-29-20

Dear families and friends,

It has been almost three months since our organization began working to prevent and ultimately manage COVID-19. A lot has changed since early March when we implemented precautions and enhanced infection control measures. As I reflect on the past few months, I am proud of our team for stepping up to this great challenge and am grateful for what we have learned along the way.

Widespread testing and personal protective equipment (PPE) have proven to be our greatest tools to date. When considering the different scenarios at our campuses, it is clear that testing has made the difference in mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Eventide Fargo care center had its first positive resident on April 10. Eventide on Eighth care center confirmed its first positive resident on April 17. You will see in the numbers below that as of today, Eventide Fargo care center has two positive residents and Eventide on Eighth care center has 24. Eventide Fargo was able to start widespread testing soon after confirmation of their first positive case, while Eventide on Eighth had to wait.

Eventide Fargo was able to conduct widespread testing at its campus on April 17 and has since conducted three additional testing events. Eventide on Eighth was unable to test until May 14 and 15, creating a lag in identifying all positive cases. Until this testing was done, we did not have the knowledge needed to cohort all positive residents and furlough all positive employees. Now that regular testing is being performed at our Moorhead facilities, we are working to mitigate the spread.

Although the cases identified at both Eventide Fargo and Eventide on Eighth were only a week apart, the timeliness in testing made for different trajectories for each campus. Recurring widespread testing at Eventide Sheyenne Crossings and Eventide Downtown in Devils Lake has proven a successful tool as both campuses, which once had one and two positive residents, currently have zero residents with COVID-19. Testing also continues at our other campuses per recommendation of the North Dakota and Minnesota Departments of Health.

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

Eventide Fargo: 2 active residents, 7 active staff, 12 inactive residents and 13 inactive staff in care center; 3 active staff and 0 active residents in senior living apartments.

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

Eventide on Eighth in Moorhead: 24 active residents, 27 active staff, 22 inactive residents and 14 inactive staff in care center; 1 active residents or staff cases in senior living apartments.

Eventide Fairmont in Moorhead: 2 active employees, 0 active residents.

Eventide Jamestown: 2 active staff and 0 active residents in care center; 0 active residents or staff in senior living apartments.

Eventide Heartland in Devils Lake: No cases.

Eventide Downtown in Devils Lake: 0 active resident, 0 active employee, 2 inactive resident and 2 inactive staff.

Eventide Lake Country Manor in Devils Lake: No cases.

Thank you for your continued support of our residents and staff.

Sincerely,

Jon Riewer, President and CEO

*Active cases include current positive cases in residents and staff. Inactive cases include resident recoveries, discharges, and those who have passed away, as well as employees who have recovered or left employment. We will not give information on deaths due to confidentiality and respect for residents and their families. The numbers on health.nd.gov are cumulative and do not account for recoveries, deaths, discharges, and other status changes. Please refer to our updates for accurate information on active cases.

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.

Eventide on Eighth in Moorhead: 29 active residents, 26 active staff, 18 inactive residents and 13 inactive staff in care center; 1 active residents and 0 staff cases in senior living apartments.

Eventide Fairmont in Moorhead: No cases.

Eventide Jamestown: 2 active staff and 0 active residents in care center; 0 active residents or staff in senior living apartments.

Eventide Heartland in Devils Lake: No cases.

Eventide Downtown in Devils Lake: 0 active resident, 0 active employee, 2 inactive resident and 2 inactive staff.

Eventide Lake Country Manor in Devils Lake: No cases.

Sincerely,

Jon Riewer, President and CEO

COVID-19 Update 5-22-20

Dear families and friends,

Testing of staff and residents took place at several of our locations this week and it is our hope that this becomes a weekly event, specifically at our locations where COVID-19 is present. Eventide Downtown in Devils Lake completed 109 tests on Tuesday. Eventide Fargo completed testing yesterday with 286 tests. Eventide Jamestown held a testing event yesterday conducting 307 tests. Eventide on Eighth care center, The Linden senior living apartments and Eventide The Fairmont in Moorhead will finish today with a total of 815 tested.

Eventide Sheyenne Crossings will test its entire campus tomorrow, which will total around 380 staff and residents tested.

To date, we have completed 4,947 tests at all of our locations. I am pleased to report that Eventide staff administered all of the tests. I have had the opportunity to attend some of our testing events and it makes me extremely proud to see our teams come together to efficiently complete testing in addition to all of their other work.

Beginning June 1, the Red River Task Force will be testing our health care workers weekly. We will continue conducting resident testing at our campuses.

Regular testing continues to be our most effective tool preventing and managing COVID-19 in our facilities. Positive results allow us to furlough infected staff and cohort positive residents to contain the virus and stop the spread. The few additional cases identified through recent testing have been in asymptomatic individuals, which proves how critical it is that we test regularly.

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

Eventide Fargo: 4 active residents, 9 active staff, 11 inactive residents and 13 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, 3 active staff, 2 inactive staff in care center; 0 active residents and 2 active staff in senior living apartments.

Eventide on Eighth in Moorhead: 26 active residents, 18 active staff, 14 inactive residents and 8 inactive staff in care center; 0 active residents or staff cases in senior living apartments.

Eventide Fairmont in Moorhead: No cases.

Eventide Jamestown: 1 active staff and 0 active residents in care center; 0 active residents or staff in senior living apartments.

Eventide Heartland in Devils Lake: No cases.

Eventide Downtown in Devils Lake: 0 active resident, 1 active employee, 2 inactive resident and 2 inactive staff.

Eventide Lake Country Manor in Devils Lake: No cases.

Thank you for your continued support of our residents and staff.

COVID-19 Update 5-20-20

Dear families and friends,

As we continue our work in protecting our residents and staff during this pandemic, we pause now and again to celebrate the dedication of our employees and strong spirit of our residents. To date, we have had the opportunity to celebrate 30 recoveries among our residents and staff. Thank you to our #EventideHeroes who have provided quality care and continue to take on the challenges of combating COVID-19. Thank you to our residents and families who continue to support one another and our staff during this difficult time of restricted visits.

For the safety and health of our residents, we continue to follow recommendations from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Reopening Recommendations were released this week and it is recommended that for the time being we keep our current restrictions in place. I realize that these measures are unprecedented and isolation is a concern. Our staff works hard to come up with creative opportunities to keep residents engaged and as active as possible. While socialization is not the same as it was prior to the pandemic, there is more engagement than individuals would experience if isolated at home. Many of our campuses are working on offering hair care soon, reopening wellness centers and encouraging residents to go outdoors when the weather is nice. As conditions improve, we will be able to ease on restrictions, but for now, I hope getting a few of these normalcies back helps.

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

Eventide Fargo: 3 active residents, 6 active staff, 11 inactive residents and 11 inactive staff in care center; 3 active staff and 0 active residents in senior living apartments.

COVID-19 Update 5-18-20

Dear families and friends,

We have received results from our first widespread testing at our Moorhead locations. We had many of the test results by the time I gave the update on Friday. The difference now being notification of positive results in two additional residents and one additional staff member. As is protocol at all of our locations, residents with COVID-19 are in an isolation area and staff are in self-quarantine.

Our focus at our locations with COVID-19 is to mitigate the spread of the virus. We will practice the enhanced infection control processes we have had in place and continue to follow recommendations from the CDC, CMS, and the Minnesota and North Dakota Departments of Health.

Regular and continued testing at all of our locations is a vital component to our plan to manage COVID-19. Testing is planned for this week at Eventide Jamestown, Eventide Sheyenne Crossings, Eventide Downtown in Devils Lake and Eventide Fargo. We are working to confirm a date to retest at our Eventide on Eighth care center in Moorhead and hope that it will be this week.

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

Eventide Fargo: 3 active residents, 5 active staff, 11 inactive residents and 11 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, 3 active staff, 2 inactive staff in care center; 0 active residents and 2 active staff in senior living apartments.

COVID-19 Update 5-15-20

Dear families and friends,

We have received many of the results from our widespread testing at our Moorhead locations and for the first time feel we are in a place where we can best manage COVID-19 at our Eventide on Eighth care center. The knowledge we have gained from regular testing at our Eventide Fargo campus has enabled us to contain the virus and now we can work to do the same in Moorhead.

With the results we’ve received, we have confirmed seven additional residents with COVID-19 and three more staff. This means we currently have 27 active cases in residents and 20 active cases in staff in our Eventide on Eighth care center (9 results pending). There are no cases at The Linden or The Fairmont (some results still pending). Residents who are positive with COVID-19 are cohorted in an isolated unit and positive staff are in self-quarantine. Recoveries in staff and residents are identified after two consecutive negative test results.

Now that we have a clear picture of what we are dealing with at Eventide on Eighth, the most important next step is regular follow-up testing. As we have learned with our North Dakota locations, in order to continue to find success in containing the virus, we need to retest often. We are hoping to confirm a date for the next widespread testing soon.

The team at Eventide on Eighth care center, The Linden and The Fairmont completed over 800 tests on Wednesday and Thursday. They created an efficient operation and got the job done without utilizing any outside sources. I commend the team at Eventide on Eighth for the incredibly difficult work they have been doing over the past few weeks. They have done an incredible job in providing compassionate care while fighting the virus that has essentially been invisible until now.

Recurring testing continues in our North Dakota locations. Eventide Fargo care center has had three testing events and is scheduled to have another next week. Eventide Fargo senior living apartments has conducted widespread testing twice. Eventide Sheyenne Crossings has had two campus-wide testing days and our locations in Jamestown and Devils Lake have each had one widespread testing event. Retesting at Eventide Jamestown and Eventide Downtown in Devils Lake are planned for next week. In addition to mass testing, each campus regularly tests units where COVID-19 is present and residents and staff who are symptomatic. Regular testing at each of our facilities is our most important tool in combatting COVID-19.

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

Eventide Fargo: 3 active residents, 10 active staff, 11 inactive residents and 6 inactive staff in care center; 3 active staff and 0 active residents in senior living apartments.

Eventide Sheyenne Crossings in West Fargo: 3 active staff and 1 active resident in care center; 0 active residents and 2 active staff in senior living apartments.

Eventide on Eighth in Moorhead: 27 active residents, 20 active staff, 8 inactive residents and 3 inactive staff in care center; 0 active residents or staff cases in senior living apartments.

Eventide Fairmont in Moorhead: No cases. (Some test results pending.)

Eventide Jamestown: 1 active staff and 0 active residents in care center; 0 active residents or staff in senior living apartments.

Eventide Heartland in Devils Lake: No cases.

Eventide Downtown in Devils Lake: 2 active staff; 2 active residents.

Eventide Lake Country Manor in Devils Lake: No cases.

Thank you to all those who advocated for testing in long-term care facilities in Moorhead. We are very appreciative of all of the effort that went into making this happen.

Sincerely,

Jon Riewer, President and CEO

COVID-19 Update 5-12-20

Dear families and friends,

This week is National Skilled Nursing Care Week and I can’t think of a more important time to thank our #EventideHeroes. I am appreciative to all of our Eventide employees for taking on unprecedented challenges while continuing to provide quality care to our residents. If you have the opportunity, I encourage you to thank a caregiver this week.

I am pleased to announce that we will be doing widespread testing in Moorhead this week. Testing will be conducted at Eventide on Eighth care center, The Linden senior living apartments and Eventide The Fairmont on Wednesday and Thursday and we hope to receive results by the beginning of next week. If you have read my previous updates, you know that we’ve been asking for widespread testing at these locations since we were first notified of a positive case. It has been frustrating to wait for these tests as we have felt we cannot get a clear picture of what we are dealing with without knowing who is positive and who is not.  Thank you to Mayor Johnathan Judd of Moorhead for his partnership and persistence in advocating for Eventide. I would also like to thank Senator Kent Eken; Representative Ben Lien; Kathy McKay, Clay County Public Health Administrator; Shawn Stoen, West Central Regional Healthcare Readiness and Response Coordinator; and the Red River Task Force for their efforts in making this happen.

Families have asked why we did not do campus wide testing sooner. Please know that we have been asking the same question for the past three weeks. We have been pressuring the state of Minnesota to do widespread testing since we were notified of our first confirmed case. From what we have experienced at our Eventide Fargo care center, we know that widespread testing and retesting has allowed us to contain the virus and find success in managing it.

Since our last update, we have been notified of a staff person at our Eventide Jamestown care center who has tested positive. We are working with the North Dakota Department of Health to ensure we are taking all necessary steps to prevent the spread of the virus in our facility and continue to follow our enhanced infection prevention plan that we activated in early March.

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

Eventide Fargo: 3 active residents, 10 active staff in care center; 11 inactive residents in care center; 6 inactive staff in care center; 1 active staff in senior living apartments; 0 active residents in senior living apartments.

COVID-19 Update 5-7-20

Vicki

Dear families and friends,

Let’s start with some good news. It is National Nurses Week and I would like to not only thank all nurses, but especially our Eventide nurses. This year has brought great challenges and they have faced them head on with courage, compassion and expertise, always keeping our residents a priority.

Yesterday at Eventide Fargo, three residents celebrated recovery from COVID-19 and gave us permission to share their names and smiling faces. They too are #EventideHeroes and an inspiration to many. Residents and staff are considered recovered after receiving two negative test results.

Marlene

The North Dakota Department of Health provided tests to Eventide’s three locations in Devils Lake last week. We did not have enough tests for all residents and staff at the time, but are completing testing today. Yesterday we received results for all of Eventide Lake Country Manor basic care and they were negative. It was confirmed that there are two staff members who tested positive at our Eventide Downtown care center. The other test results received have been negative and we will share results from today’s testing once we receive them.

Below you will see the number of active and inactive cases we have at each location. The North Dakota Government page gives a total, aggregate number that does not decrease. The numbers on the North Dakota report do not capture the reality of what is happening inside the various facilities it lists. It is a cumulative number that does not account for recoveries, deaths, discharges, and other status changes. Please refer to our updates for accurate information on active cases.

COVID-19 Update 5-5-20

Dear families and friends,

We recently received the results of our widespread testing at our Eventide Jamestown campus, which included all staff and residents at our skilled nursing building and senior living apartments. I am happy to report that all results were negative. We will continue our diligent infection prevention measures to do our best to keep the virus out.

While I am grateful that we have been able to do testing in our North Dakota facilities, I continue to be frustrated at the shortage of testing in Minnesota. As we continue to see small increases in our number of cases at Eventide on Eighth, we are discouraged with the lack of widespread testing for all congregate settings in Minnesota. Without the ability to test all of our staff and residents, we continue to be unable to detect asymptomatic carriers. Successfully cohorting infected residents and furloughing infected staff will be difficult without necessary testing, as many of the positive cases we have found at our other locations have been asymptomatic. Currently, only those showing symptoms are tested in Minnesota.

We continue to advocate on behalf of our residents and staff to make widespread testing a priority in Minnesota. Thank you to all who have contacted state and local representatives to support this effort.

Keeping our residents and staff safe and healthy is our priority. Our teams at all of our locations continue to practice enhanced infection control measures, use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), and follow all recommended guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and the state Departments of Health.

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

Eventide Fargo: 8 active residents, 11 active staff in care center; 1 active staff in senior living apartments; 0 active residents in senior living apartments; 6 inactive residents in care center; 1 inactive staff in care center.

Eventide Sheyenne Crossings in West Fargo: 3 active staff in care center; 0 active residents in care center; 0 active residents or staff cases in senior living apartments.
