SEPTEMBER 14, 2020 – Fall is here! New school year, changing weather, more time indoors . . . all bring new challenges for the risk of COVID.
Pediatrician Kelly Meyer, DO, FAAP gives tips on staying healthy – and in good spirits – with the change of season.
The number of COVID cases in Minnesota has stayed fairly stable through the summer. With the shift in seasons, health experts expect to see an increase in cases. It’s hard to know when, or how it will take shape. So it’s important to maintain healthy habits.
SEPTEMBER 2, 2020 -- It's almost school time! Pediatrician Todd Amunrud, DO offers COVID safety tips for school and daycare:
Prevention is key. Masks, cleaning, and physical distance are all important to prevent spread of virus. Keep a high standard for these habits. Be firm and diligent.
Masks for everyone over 2 years old. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends masks for all kids 2+ anytime they’re not in their own home. In general, there is no health condition that prevents a person from wearing a mask.
JULY 6, 2020 – Northfield Hospital + Clinics expands COVID testing to include asymptomatic people (no symptoms) who have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID.
Exposure is being within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes without a mask to a person who has tested positive for COVID.
JUNE 29, 2020 – Northfield Hospital + Clinics is allowing some visitors to the hospital and clinics as part of adjusting its COVID restrictions. Visitor requirements and screening will limit patient and staff exposure. This expansion may be reversed if there’s an increase in positive COVID cases.
The Long Term Care Center is NOT allowing visitors. Restrictions continue for the Long Term Care Center, to protect residents from possible exposure to coronavirus. (Skilled nursing facilities are regulated separately from hospitals, with different requirements.)
