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?
  • 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.  
  • The Biden Administration has announced the launch of the first federally-supported "test-to-treat" sites for COVID-19 that will allow for the rapid deployment of the antiviral pill Paxlovid
  • Medicaid-certified nursing facilities can still apply for  up to $ 3,000 in CMP monies to purchase portable fans and portable room air cleaners
  • Congrats to our members who have reach 75% of higher staff vaccination rate! Check out the list here
