Vernon Terrace COVID-19 Update
The safety of our Residents and Staff Members who live and work in our community is our top priority at Vernon Terrace. We have made some changes in our operation to maintain the safety of our community.
First and foremost, we are screening everyone who enters by having them fill out a health questionnaire. We are restricting entry to those who tell us that they are experiencing or exhibiting any respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat.
We understand you want to visit with your loved ones and friends during this time, we are offering the following opportunities to facilitate this.
- Personal visits on our patio in Willows Memory Care. (please contact us to schedule)
- Virtual visits coordinated by our Team via Zoom calls.
In cooperation with our partners at Lifesprk our Team is also taking every possible proactive step to prevent the spread of the virus and keep our community healthy and safe:
- Using universal precautions and personal protective equipment including, masks, face shields, and gloves.
- Providing hand sanitizing stations at all community entrances.
- Increasing cleanings and disinfecting throughout the campus.
UPDATE: Our Beauty Salon is now open for Residents. Our Beautician is following all current safety precautions required by the Minnesota Department of Health.
UPDATE: We have resumed scheduled transportation to doctors’ appointments and outings like Walgreens, Target and grocery stores.
We continue to follow the guidelines and restrictions determined by the Center for Disease Prevention (CDC) as well as the Minnesota Department of Health and Human Services.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
I moved into Vernon Terrace after I was no longer able to maintain my house. I was looking for a place with activities, social interaction, medical services and dining services. Vernon Terrace has it all, and all of the occupants are very friendly and welcoming. I especially love the events they put on for us and the outings!- Lois J.
