4.23.2021 COVID Update

April 23rd, 2021

Trinity monitored staff and residents for COVID-19 this week. There were no positive cases on campus.  This week reflects our 2nd week of covid testing since our COVID positive exposure.  Should all results return negative Trinity Care Center will be re-opening for visits.  You will receive a similar notice when this occurs.

Unfortunately, while cases in long-term care centers remain relatively low due to vaccination efforts, case rates in our local communities have climbed dramatically again. County positivity rates continue to dictate testing frequency and visitation policies. Data published Tuesday show there were 193 people in Minnesota’s hospitals getting intensive care for COVID-19 complications the day before, a rise of 21% from last week.

You are a key partner in keeping our care center open for visiting and ending this pandemic. We encourage you to connect with your primary health care provider or use the Vaccine Locator map (Vaccine Locations / COVID-19 Updates and Information – State of Minnesota (mn.gov)) to find a vaccine appointment near you.

To read our Visitation practice in more detail, we urge you to check our website.  Out of state travel, known exposures, symptoms of Covid 19 and/or refusal to follow infection control protocol will restrict your visitation.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
