Sholom’s COVID-19 Numbers

Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has announced guidance to allow visitors to senior care organizations. Please review the recent changes to visitation. 

Visitation at Sholom ensures compliance with MDH maximum allowed capacity levels due to COVID-19 restrictions for Sholom locations in non-quarantine status.  When Sholom locations are under quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure, essential and compassionate care visits are allowed.  If you would like to continue visitation during quarantines,  be sure to complete and submit your essential caregiver application as detailed here.  

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:

  • 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.  
  • 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:

  • Indoor, outdoor and window visits scheduled by appointment per MDH guidance, as required.   
  • 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.
