Good afternoon families, residents, and staff of Aase Haugen.

We want you to be aware that one vaccinated staff member tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday 11/27, and that staff person had not worked since 11/24.  According to federal and state guidelines, we have tested all residents, and all are negative.  All staff will be tested on Tuesday 11/30.

As you are aware, federal and state mandates have changed the visiting rules so that all residents can receive visitors that they wish at any time. This means family and friends no longer have to schedule visits, but you will still need to:

  1. Be scanned in and out at the front door.
  2. Wear a mask at all times as Winneshiek County rate for COVID-19 is still above what the government deems acceptable.
  3. Visits can only take place in resident’s room.  (Not in the dining room or other public spaces.)
  4. Groups of more than three visitors should schedule to visit in a designated visiting room though the Activities Department.  Email hexom@aasehaugen.com  or call for Activities 563-382-3603.

As always these are subject to change based on guidelines provided to us from the state and federal government.
