Listed are requirements that Bethany Retirement Living has put in place for visitation to keep our residents safe.  Upon entering the building you will be screened and, if these requirements are not met, you will not be allowed accessIf these guidelines are not followed while in the building, you will be asked to leave.  Thank you for your understanding and continual support in protecting your loved ones and all who reside at Bethany.

  • All visitors must wear a face mask while in the building. A face shield is also required while in the building if you have NOT received all required doses of the Covid vaccine and have reached 14 days past required dosage.  You must provide proof of vaccination.  You must have all required items when you arrive to visit or we will not allow visitation.  These items are available for purchase at Thrifty White Pharmacy at Bethany on 42nd (please use the pharmacy door on the west side of the building), at the administrative desk at Bethany on University, or you can purchase one from a supplier of your choice. (Exceptions would be made for compassionate end-of-life care situations).
  • One to two visitors per resident/patient at a time. All visitors must follow facility Covid-19 guidelines on masking, face shield use and infection control.
  • Children must be supervised at all times by an adult.  One child per visitation.  children over the age of two and vaccinated children over the age of 12 must wear a mask. Non-vaccinated children over the age of 12 must wear a mask and face shield.
  • To keep residents healthy and safe please consider getting vaccinated as soon as you are able.  If you have not been vaccinated, please consider getting tested before you visit and bring proof of current COVID-19 testing results with you.  The 25th testing site offers rapid tests, so you can have the results in 15 minutes.  We prefer proof of a negative COVID-19 test that was taken within the past 5 days.  If you do not get rapid tested, we recommend that you get a PCR test on the same day every week so you get an idea of when you will be receiving the test results from the Department of Health in either ND or MN.  Free testing is available at the following locations: 3051 25th Street S., Suite K, Fargo, ND.    Between Grand Junction Subs and Midwest Vision.

  • Compassionate Care visits are allowed for residents and patients in isolation after visitor has received donning and doffing instructions and education. Visitor understands that if the compassionate visitation is for a resident/patient in isolation and/or non-vaccinated that the visitor should consult their provider prior to entering as the visitor may be at an increased risk of exposure.  We strongly prefer video visits or regular phone calls until a resident or patient isolation is done.
