Trinity Care Center tested all residents and staff for COVID-19 this week. A few employee test results are still pending.
Results from this week’s testing are as follows:
- Trinity Care Center – 0 positive residents, 1 positive employee
- Trinity Terrace – 0 positive tenants, 0 positive employees
- Trinity Suites – 0 positive tenants, 0 positive employees
Due to Trinity Care Center’s positive Covid result, indoor visits at TCC remains suspended until we have had two weeks free from Covid 19. However, we are able to re-initiate small group activities for our residents. The residents are eager for BINGO and Friday Happy hours!
This week, MDH health officials contacted a computerized random selection of Minnesotans aged 65 and up, who signed up to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Unfortunately, with only 11,700 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to give away, many on this list will not receive the vaccine this week. If you were not contacted on Wednesday, your name will remain on the list for the next round of vaccine distributions. For staff and residents at our care center our next vaccination date is February 9th. For the Terrace and Suites, February 18th
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and like previous holidays throughout the COVID Pandemic, must be celebrated cautiously. MDH and CDC have not changed guidance regarding residents leaving our care centers during the pandemic. With any holiday this year, we have seen an increase of virtual visits requested. Please remember to plan ahead and schedule your virtual visit with activities as soon as possible. 651.460.1166.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
