Sholom's COVID-19 Numbers

Please note: It remains the recommendation of the CDC, MDH and the Governor’s office that at risk individuals, including all of Sholom’s seniors at our communities, remain in their place of residence until the Governor’s peace time emergency order is lifted.  All Sholom locations will continue to enforce visitor restrictions until the peace emergency order is rescinded and the CDC removes the no visitors guidance.   Remember, even if weather allows, please do not plan to visit your loved one outside as this does not comply with the governor’s recommendations.  Our staff is dedicated to keeping our residents and fellow staff members safe and healthy, Remember, our lives are in each other’s hands.

Sholom’s Mitigating Actions:

  • As part of Governor Walz five point plan, we are proud to take part in wide spread testing of residents and staff for the following locations and dates: 
    • Chapman Sholom Home East and Bentson Family Assisted Living and Phillips Center for Memory Care on June 5, 2020 and re-testing on June 12, 2020 and June 19, 2020
    • Roitenberg Family Assisted Living and Hodroff Pavilion for Memory Care residents and staff were tested on May 30, 2020.  All tested residents and staff results were NEGATIVE for COVID-19.  Testing will be conducted again on June 6, 2020 and June 13, 2020
    • Sholom Home West residents and staff will be tested on June 10, 2020 with retesting on June 18, 2020 and June 25, 2020
  • MDH feels it is important to do repeat testing every 7 days to be able to catch anyone that may have tested negative and may then turn positive at any given time.
  • Collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) as they lead investigations to determine exposure risk for any residents or staff who may have had contact with individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19
  • Transparent communications to residents, tenants, families and staff regarding COVID-19 test results
  • Communications with residents, tenants, families and staff when MDH officials release any new guidelines or protocols.
  • Quarantine and isolate residents that have tested positive for COVID-19 or are pending COVID-19 test results who do not require hospitalization, a pre-designated isolation area where trained staff will provide the best possible care for these individuals. 

Sholom continues best practices in prevention through:

  • Ongoing visitor restrictions*
  • Proactive monitoring for any signs or symptoms of all staff and residents.
  • If any resident or staff exhibits the any symptom such as an elevated temperature, cough, sore throat or other symptoms consistent with the virus, we will proceed to test.
  • Requiring all staff and private duty caregivers in all buildings to wear masks and face shields to protect residents and themselves,
  • Masking residents/tenants as tolerated by the resident/tenant, ongoing reminders to tenants and residents to maintain appropriate social distancing
  • Deep cleaning of any affected areas
  • Thorough sanitization of high traffic/touch areas
  • Sholom leadership continues to meet daily to assess the situation and provide the best possible care and protection using evidence-based practices. Regular updates and information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the MDH help to guide Sholom’s direction and practices.  We will continue to take all the necessary steps to keep residents and staff safe.
