Care facilities hit hard by coronavirus, but Birchwood excels
Monday, August 31, 2020
Each day like clockwork, Noel Lovas will use his computer and link to the Minnesota Department of Health website daily report on the COVID-19 pandemic. On Fridays, his eyes go first to the weekly update on coronavirus outbreaks at congregate care facilities in the state.
His task has good reason. As executive director of Birchwood Senior Living, he’s in charge of making sure that Birchwood Health Care Center and its assisted-living facility, the Birchwood Arbors, remain free of the virus. And free of the virus it has remained.
