First Round of Covid-19 Whole House Testing Completed

May 27, 2020

Dear Residents and Families,

Thank you for your patience while we complete our whole house testing with the Minnesota Department of Health!  We finished the first round of testing before noon today and everything went very well! The National Guard staff who came to test were wonderful to work with and very compassionate.  The staff and the residents handled the nose swabs very well!

Jones-Harrison will be emailed our results from the Mayo Health System in Rochester.  Test results are coming back in batches at different times.  We will be calling our resident’s primary contact as we receive their results. If we cannot reach you, we will leave a message and ask that you call us back.  PLEASE DO NOT call us asking for results unless we have left a message for you to call us.

All residents and staff who are testing negative will be retested in about seven days and again the following week. This will also be done by the National Guard and tests sent to the Mayo in Rochester once again.  We will repeat the same process of notifying families when the results come back.  When all the results are back, we will send out a summary email.

We appreciate everyone’s support and patience with this process.  Jones-Harrison wishes to express its thanks to the caring and supportive team from the National Guard.
