Because we want to keep everyone fully informed of the COVID status at our facility, we are letting staff, residents, and the family contacts for residents know that one of the members of our staff has been tested positive for COVID-19. This staff member is a very part-time employee of Bay View. This employee’s identified exposure to COVID-19 occurred in a community setting and not at Bay View. The employee has not been at work since before symptoms began, and the Minnesota Department of Health has been notified. We have followed and will continue to follow all proper protocol as outlined by the state. The Minnesota Department of Health has evaluated this staff member as a low risk to our residents. At this time, we have no cases of respiratory illness in our facility and we have been screening residents frequently for any signs and symptoms of COVID, including temperatures, oxygen saturation level and respiratory rate. We have implemented increased cleaning and sanitization of our facility and have also increased resident screenings, as well as screening all staff prior to each shift. At this time, we have no residents that are COVID positive or showing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. We will continue to do everything we can to keep our staff and residents healthy and safe.
