Commitment to Safety

Our number one priority is the health, wellness and safety of those we serve and our staff. Safety has been—and will continue to be—our highest priority.

Transparency has always been important to us and an important component to our approach at Knute Nelson. Since the pandemic began, we have been openly communicating with residents and families about the precautions we have enacted to uphold the safety and security of our residents and staff.

We have implemented comprehensive infection control measures to protect our residents and staff, based on recommended COVID-19 guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

•    We began facility-wide testing in May as a way to be proactive in our approach to knowing where to locate the invisible virus.
•    Our policies and procedures, including use of personal protective equipment and regular testing, are designed to protect our caregivers while they are at work and the people they serve.
•    We continue to complete regular testing based on a number of factors, including the county positivity rate.

We have begun to roll-out vaccine clinics at each of our housing and care center sites as a further way to mitigate the spread of COVID. We will continue to enact our safety and screening precautions.
