Dear Sholom residents, tenants, staff and families,

Yom Kippur Blessings! 

Our St. Paul Shaller Family Sholom East campus and Menorah Plaza community are currently under quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure per Minnesota Department of Health guidelines. 

We are pleased to announce our St. Louis Park Ackerberg Family Sholom West campus has resumed essential caregiver visits, window and outdoor visits, communal dining and small group activities. 

At our St. Louis Park location, Sholom Home West has one staff member with active, positive COVID-19.  Menorah Plaza has two residents and two staff members with active, positive COVID-19.  Roitenberg Family Assisted Living and Hodroff Pavilion for Memory Care, Knollwood Place Apartments and Menorah West have no active COVID-19 resident or staff cases.

Our Shaller Family Sholom East Campus in St. Paul has one staff that has tested positive for COVID-19 at Bentson Assisted Living and Phillips Center for Memory Care and and one staff positive at Chapman Sholom Home East.  There are no confirmed COVID-19 residents or staff at Weinberg Apartments.

Our homecare and hospice team has no confirmed COVID-19 clients or staff.

MDH has recently announced further guidance to allow more visitors to senior care organizations (phase 2).  There are a number of protocols that must be developed before additional visitors will be allowed at Sholom.  At this time, we are working on a testing strategy for implementation at our skilled care centers (Sholom Home West and Chapman Sholom Home East)  Additional protocols from MDH call for no positive COVID-19 cases for 28 days before we move to the phase 2 level of opening the campus. These are just a few of the many guidelines we are working through to provide the safest, most reasonable re-integration of visitors to Sholom’s locations.  We will communicate our plans as we partner with MDH on this visitor expansion. 

Our priority is to keep everyone safe and healthy. Because of the high risk to our residents, MDH continues to recommend anyone over 70 years old to continue isolating at home, wearing masks and practice physical distancing as much as possible.

We need your partnership to get through this pandemic as a community.  We appreciate your continued support and patience as we strive to serve our community and loved ones.
