As soon as there is one confirmed case of COVID-19 in a resident or worker at a congregate living facility, the department of health classifies it as an outbreak. Kris Ehresmann of the department of health said just because a facility is named doesn't mean there is a big problem there. 

"The fact that some facility is listed on our website does not mean necessarily that there is a flaming crisis within that facility," Ehresmann said Saturday. "We have identified a very narrow definition of outbreak. That is a single resident or a single staff person or a single contractor who was in the facility during their infectious period, and their infectious period, we're counting two days before the person had symptoms." 

The decision to name some facilities came after the Star Tribune published a story in which an elderly law attorney argued that "it's absolutely critical for the public to know which facilities have [COVID-19 cases] or this could jump from facility to facility like wildfire.”

Overall, there are 47 congregate care settings with at least one case. Here's the breakdown: 

  • 31 have 1 case
  • 7 have 2 cases
  • 9 with 2+ cases

A total of 85 people from congregate settings have tested positive for COVID-19, including 59 residents and 26 staff/workers. 

Thirteen of the 24 COVID-19 deaths in Minnesota are patients from congregate care settings.
