It actually turned out my wife’s client died from a heart attack, but did test positive for COVID-19. I don’t know if the heart attack was brought on by the extra stress of the virus. He also had asthma.

We've been lucky so far in Manistee County, Michigan, with only 11 cases and no deaths, but I'm afraid it won't last, too many believe it's a hoax. Wonder where they get that from?

Good.
I think the worst is over.
BUT It'll probably pop up in the
fall/winter again.

Yes we had 26 cases at the nursing home I work at
they were all one one section 11 died the rest recovered Alot of staff quit but the ones that stayed were very good at what they do. Short staffed, many worked double 12 hr shifts I work in building maintenance The covid was contained and did not spread to the other 250 plus residents

thanks! Looking back at all of it It really made a difference in someones life . The family members still have a grandpa or grandma or parents to someday visit (we are in a lockdown for visitors)
I am getting a "heros bonus pay " But the nurses n staff are the real heros it takes courage to work around that covid when you have a family at home and if you are at risk yourself (MN has lost over 900 older residents of nursing home so far)

Things are getting much better at the place I work They have "window visits" which is a visit by phone through a window. Also a area is set aside so that outdoor visits with masks and distance requirements can be done. All very good things ! I think about 3 months have been under restrictions Some people have also been putting on music shows..outside

this is my last post on the subject of covid. below is a letter sent to our local paper from where I work (and other care homes) I am glad they give credit to the healthcare workers: they deserve it.
When COVID-19 struck, new restrictions were thrust upon senior living communities. It has been hard for residents and family members, and we have all worked tirelessly to help them cope and even thrive amid the isolation.
As fear from COVID-19 grew, that fear was felt by our employees. They knew they were as susceptible to contracting the virus as anyone else. They also knew they had to stay healthy to defend our vulnerable populations from this unseen force.
We thought COVID-19 would be the hardest thing our industry would ever face. And then came the spark from the horrifying killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. That spark ignited fires in our hearts and cities. As the evenings turned violent, our teams once again, put their own fears aside to protect and serve our residents.
This is courage. These are heroes.
We are awe-struck by the sheer bravery and sacrifice we have witnessed by those who work in senior living. We witness the genuine love that our team members show to residents who feel alone. In the midst of pain, we see so much good.
But the stories being reported are more often of the pain than the good. Thousands of senior living residents have fought and won the battle against the coronavirus. Minnesota continues to have fewer cases and deaths among senior living residents than most other states. Our caregivers are winning battles against COVID-19, and they need to hear it.
This journey is not over, and our dedicated staff will continue to carry burdens and make sacrifices. We hope that members of the media, our legislators, families and neighbors will see the love of our teams and join us in saying “thank you” for their perseverance, dedication and love.
This letter was submitted by presidents and CEOs of Minnesota senior living communities: Bob Dahl, Cassia; Jon Lundberg; Ebenezer; Jim Bettendorf, Vista Prairie Communities; Dan Lindh, Presbyterian Homes, and Scott Riddle, Walker Methodist.

A final note: after four months of not having any visitors , My site and others are going to bring family and friends back into the building to visit residents. The will be limitations... masks gowns face shield.. but they will visit. The health dept found that the isolation was perhaps too much and may be contributing to residents passing away

A sad note here, an assisted care facility in Billings refused to do any testing and this past week end 86% of the residents and employee's tested positive there have now been 3 deaths. I imagine the insurance company will just write a check for the total of there obligation and turn the money over to the courts. :sad :

Am sorry to hear that and am at a loss for words. State of MN did not start testin care home residents until over 900 residents had passed away they also had stockpiles of masks.. they were holding Now they are testing all the nursing homes and distributing the masks and gowns I dont understand the delay and many people were very angry about the neglect or delay

When this topic started my answer was no but Texas has now turned into a hotbed of virus activity. Today I received the sad news that my cousin Chevelle (her real name) has passed away after hospitalization for covid 19 complications. Her husband and twenty something year old daughter also tested positive but seem to be doing okay. We have all been tested since we were in contact with my cousin but fortunately we are all negative.

I am sorry to hear that, Louie.
These past 6 months or so have
seemed like an eternity.
I wonder when we will,
If we will ever,
get back to "normal".
My condolences to you
and your family.
PEACE

My cousin made national news. Del Rio (my home town originally) is in a world of hurt. My brother called me up and warned me not to go but my wife insisted on attending an event for my cousin about 3-4 weeks ago. It was the last time we saw her. One week after we were there we got a call that she was in the hospital but we thought she was getting better. She was gone in about a week or less.

I am sorry to hear that.
Perhaps it was Divine Providence
that you went.
Trying to figure out what IS a good enough
reason to visit verses the risks is maddening!

I haven't seen most of my
grand kids in 6 months.
Showed up at one of my
son's house without calling.
We sat on his front lawn for an hour
six feet apart with masks on.

My condolences to you
and your extended family.

Last Saturday my granddaughter got married (#2), she lives 250 miles from here which is no big deal except for rest stops and lunch. She lives in one of the two hot spots in the state and given my physical problems I sure do not want to get the virus. So we stayed home and will meet later when things clear up.The Covid has really made some serious changes in the way we live and conduct our lives. We have not had a sit down visit with our neighbor since early last February.

`I thought things were getting better up here in MN but our cases are increasing since we opened up things. I spoke with a guy were I work ( 250 bed nursing home I am a maintenance tech) He was in hosp for 15 days with covid and isolated 2 months and he is still not 100 percent recovered (he is over 65) A woman got past our locked entrance and was frantic to see her mom We have been locked down for 5 months I spoke with a nurse who has 40 years as a RN She said we have to lockdown the whole country.I dont think that will happen. I wash my hands wear a mask and avoid crowds and hope our medical people come through with a cure
