Press Release – COVID 19

June 30th, 2020

Through routine bi-weekly screening, MCHC has identified a staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19.

This staff member had recently returned from a trip out of state, was completely asymptomatic at the time of screening, and is currently quarantined at home per ND Department of Health guidelines.

Our infection control team has performed the necessary contact tracing in house and families have been notified accordingly. We have instituted immediate repeat testing of MBH and Rosen Place residents as well as testing of our entire staff to screen for any additional positive cases.

Given the dynamic nature of COVID-19 and with regard to the nationwide plans to re-open/restart, MCHC has put any plans for face-to-face visitation in our nursing home and assisted living on hold at this time.
