COVID-19 (coronavirus) Resources


Coronavirus updates

Stay informed & stay well

We have a lot of resources available on COVID-19, but have you seen these latest news and resources pertaining to COVID-19?
  • MDH released a document on COVID-19 testing information and test ordering links on August 8, 2022
  • BA.5 is the dominant variant making up 75% of the variants (up from 64% last week), BA.4 is contributing 14%, slightly down from 15%
  • Keep up to date by checking the “Vaccine Data Dashboard”, which tracks Minnesota's progress on the following: distribution of COVID-19 vaccine throughout the state; doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered; and who's getting vaccinated
  • Community transmissions continue to be very high across most of Minnesota right now—with high community transmission rates it is assumed that asymptomatic staff/residents/visitors are present in your building, which is why a higher level of PPE is still the best practice. See the MDH PPE grid, which has not been changed since April, and we don’t anticipate a change anytime soon. 
  • Congrats to our members who have reach 75% of higher staff vaccination rate! Check out the list here
