Sholom’s Mitigating Actions:

  • COVID-19 vaccines have been administered to residents, tenants and clients.  Vaccine clinics continue to be scheduled regularly to accommodate new residents and staff members.  The booster vaccines are currently being administered to residents, staff and volunteers. 
  • COVID-19 testing continues to be completed monthly for care center staff. Additional testing for residents and staff at Sholom’s assisted living and memory care  are conducted per Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) outbreak testing guidelines.  
  • 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:

  • 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.
  • Deep cleaning of any affected areas
  • Thorough sanitization of high traffic/touch areas
  • Sholom leadership continues to meet 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.
