Dear Friends and Family,
Today we were notified we had a positive exposure of COVID-19 from a vaccinated outside consultant at the Littlefork Care Center. Due to the positive case in our care center, we have begun point-prevalence testing of all staff and residents regardless of vaccination status. This will occur until 2 rounds of testing return with no new positives. This does not impact the Jackpine Chateau. We are following recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
MDH requires us to restrict indoor visitation until all testing results return negative. At this time, we can continue Compassionate Care and Essential Care visits. Resident activities, dining, and doctor appointments will also continue in areas not impacted. We encourage our family and friends to reach out to us to schedule closed window visits, outdoor visits or virtual visits during this time.
Please follow our Facebook page (@Littlefork Care Center and Jack Pine Chateau) or our website (www.sfhs.org) for all COVID updates and information on what is happening inside our care center. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Stephanie Fairchild, Administrator, at 218-278-3481 if you have any questions or concerns.
