Sholom’s COVID-19 Numbers

MDH has announced guidance to allow more visitors to senior care organizations.  Please read Sholom’s response to this visitation guidance.

At this time, because of COVID-19 positivity, visitation remains restricted at Ackerberg campus, Shaller campus and Menorah Plaza locations.  Please see below for quarantine review dates.

Due to surrounding county COVID-19 positivity rates above the 10% threshold, essential caregivers and compassionate care visits are only allowed on a case by case basis at Sholom’s locations at this time. 

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:

  • Multiple rounds of testing are continuing to be completed regularly for residents and staff at Sholom’s assisted living, memory care and skilled care locations.
  • Additional broad based testing may be conducted as determined MDH. 
  • 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 indoor visitor restrictions. Outdoor and window visits scheduled by appointment.  
  • 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.
