COVID-19

NDHC continues to follow all recommendations and provide resources and support to reduce the impacts of COVID-19 in our communities. General public guidance often differs from healthcare and congregate living setting guidance. 

 

Visitors

  • Facemasks are required in NDHC's long-term and acute care settings. Disposable masks are available at the screening desk.

  • All visitors should enter through the main campus Emergency entrance and proceed to the screening station. All visitors are asked to confirm their COVID risk by completing the sign-in log and verifying current body temperature before proceeding to visit a patient or resident

  • Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory infections including but not limited to cough, fever, or congestion should delay their visit to residents or patients 

  • Any visitor who has tested positive for COVID 19 within the past 10 days are restricted from visiting until symptoms have improved and they are 10 days past a positive test.

Vaccinations

​Vaccination remains one of the best ways to prepare the human body for potential and inevitable exposure. Although breakthrough infections are notably happening, staying up-to-date with vaccination gives your immune system a head start should you contract COVID-19.

  • NDHC offers vaccinations to eligible individuals. Call 701-587-6900 to schedule.

  • Enter your zip code at www.vaccine.gov to find additional vaccine options

Testing

  • While supplies last, free at-home test kits (provided by the North Dakota Department of Health) are available to any resident at any of our 3 clinic locations

  • NDHC staff can perform COVID-19 pre-op, travel and post-exposure testing including PCR testing.

NDHC Precautions

  • More than 90% of NDHC employees are fully-vaccinated

  • All employees are screened before their shift begins.

  • All patients are screened prior to appointments and/or admission

  • Employees wear recommended personal protective equipment

  • Unvaccinated employees are tested per CDC and CMS recommendations depending on county transmission and or positivity rate.

  • Employees and visitors experiencing symptoms and/or testing positive are restricted from entering for 10 days from onset

  • Residents who test positive are isolated for 10 days (20 if indicated) and closely monitored and cared for
