If a visitor does not have a mask, masks are available at the Administrative Services Desk at Bethany on 42nd and the Administrative Services Desk at Bethany on University.
  • All visitors must follow facility Covid-19 guidelines on masking and infection control.
  • Children must be supervised at all times by an adult. Children over the age of two must wear a mask.
  • To keep residents healthy and safe please consider getting vaccinated and boosted 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. You can obtain free at home Covid-19 testing kits by visiting covidtests.gov.   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. This site is open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, and no appointment is necessary.
    • Former Thomas Edison Elementary School, 1110 14th Street South, Moorhead. This is saliva testing and the site is open Monday/Tuesday/Friday from 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm and Saturday/Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  Schedule Appointment with Vault Health.
    • At home testing kits covidtests.gov
  • 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, 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.
  • All visitors must sanitize upon entering the building, during their visit, and when exiting the building. Please bring personal hand sanitizer with you if you can.
  • All visitors must limit their visitation to only the room of the resident/patient they are visiting.
  • If the family member/person being visited is in a Semi-Private room, please visit with them in a common area outside of their room on their household/unit.
  • If the visitor is unvaccinated and/or the resident being visited is unvaccinated, the visitor will refrain from shaking hands, hugging, or close contact with residents during the visit and limit touching objects/items in their room.
  • Visitation will not be allowed if the visitor has had any of the following symptoms in the past 3 days: cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, muscle aches, headache, fatigue, chills, loss of taste/smell, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
  • We will not allow visitation if you have been in close contact* with someone who is suspected of having or does have COVID-19, unless you have been cleared from isolation by the Department of Health.
  • We will not allow visitation if you have a temperature greater than or equal to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

*Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet or within the same  room for more than 15 minutes while not wearing recommended personal protective equipment (i.e. respirator, eye protection) or having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (being coughed/sneezed on).
