Re:         Weekly Coronavirus Update, May 1, 2020 – Oak Meadows Website:


Dear Oak Meadows’ tenants and families,


We continue to be very blessed that our building is free of any positive COVID-19 cases. Thank you to each of you and your families for all of your cooperation during this time. Governor Walz announced that he is extending the Stay at Home order until May 18th. We have come this far, we can do this! But I also know it is going to be a lovely weekend and we all need fresh air. There are several senior living sites in the Washington County area that have positive COVID cases. We do not want that to happen here so we absolutely must take every precaution necessary. Please read below for our Oak Meadows policies as we continue to shelter in place.



  • All tenants have been given 2 cloth masks now. If you need another one please let us know. Please remember to wear your mask whenever you need to leave your apartment for anything or when you go outside.


  • You can go outside to the patios outside of the Community Room and Multi-Purpose Room or the Memory Garden in front of the Pines entrance or outside the Ponds entrance. But please DO NOT sit at the Pines entrance. There is a tremendous amount of people coming and going at that entrance so we want to limit your exposure to others.


  • Remember to stay 6 feet from all other people.


  • Continue to stay away from large stores and large groups.


  • Oak Meadows will continue to not have congregate dining, large group activities or worship. Meals will continue being delivered to apartments. We will keep you posted when this might change.


  • We will continue to limit visitors in to our building. Please call me if you need to have a family member come to your apartment for anything or picking you up for a doctor appointment.


  • Remember to keep you black bag hanging outside of your apartment door. Your mail should be kept private and putting it in the black bag keeps it less visible to others. Plus the black bags are constantly getting treats and fun stuff!


  • Thank you again to the generosity of families, tenants and others for the generous donations of money, treats and other items. We are ever so grateful to everyone.



Blessings to each of you and thank you for all of your cooperation with maintaining our building policies during this time.  We know this will get better, it is going to take time, but we are in it together and we are here for each of you.
