ILLNESS PREVENTION STATEMENT


To Our Residents and Family Members:

We would like to address the concerns regarding the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on the health and safety of our residents, associates, and families. Our number one priority is to ensure our residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment. Given the fluidity of the current situation, we’ve implemented measures to prevent the potential onset and subsequent spread of COVID-19 in our community. However, this will take a coordinated effort from everyone involved.

With guidance and recommended action from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Minnesota Department of Health, and county health department officials, we are working with the utmost vigilance to limit the possibility for the virus to enter our building. We are currently refraining from all visits.

Additional proactive steps we’re taking include:

  • We are eliminating all outings to public spaces including grocery stores, religious services, shopping malls, theaters, and casinos.
  • We are closing all resident self-service dining venues.
  • We are postponing or cancelling all community events and our social events until further notice.
  • We strongly recommend that residents cancel or postpone all upcoming travel, including flights and cruises.
  • Residents returning to the community following a hospital stay must be screened prior to their arrival. 
  • Adding supplemental screening measures for new residents to ensure they have not been exposed.
  • Prohibiting building access to those residents who have reason to believe they or someone they’ve been in close contact with have been exposed to COVID-19.
  • Prohibiting building access to anyone who has traveled abroad in the past 14-days or anyone sharing a household with a person who has traveled abroad in the last 14-day.

Additional cleaning protocols include:

  • Regular cleaning and sanitizing of all high-traffic common areas.
  • Regular cleaning of high touch point areas including handrails, door handles, elevator buttons, and faucets.
  • Implementing strict handwashing procedures per CDC guidelines for all Prairie Bluffs Senior Living associates.
  • Supplying our associates with the appropriate protective clothing, such as gowns and gloves, in the event they interact with a resident who appears to be symptomatic.

Residents and family members are asked to:

  • Update emergency contact information to ensure we have the most recent data. Please reach out to our Executive Director or Director of Nursing to update your phone number or email address.
  • Practice appropriate handwashing: use soap and water and wash hands for a MINIMUM of 20 seconds. 
  • Avoid touching your face – eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough: if you need to cough or sneeze, do so into the crook of your elbow. Discard used tissues in the trash and immediately wash your hands.
  • Avoid shaking hands and hugging.
  • Use the alcohol-based hand sanitizer found throughout the building.

If you are a resident and experience a cough, fever, sore throat, running nose, and/or shortness of breath, please stay inside your apartment and contact an associate immediately.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to please follow the guidance of the CDC, World Health Organization, and the Minnesota Department of Health, who is leading the state’s preparedness and communication efforts.

Testimonials

We learned about Prairie Bluffs in its initial construction stage and contacted Stephanie Frederick. At that time, she had no office, but we reached her on her cell phone and she handled our questions very promptly and professionally. Each time we spoke with her, we came away informed and assured we would be able to find what we wanted/needed in senior housing at Prairie Bluffs. Colin Golden then contacted us when floor plans were available for us to see. We met with him and he went over them with us in detail. He arranged for us to visit the unit we had selected before it was completed. It has been a pleasant and comfortable process thus far and we are looking forward to our move in the very near future. This will be a positive change in our lives.
