Essentia Health - Oak Crossing nursing home in Detroit Lakes on Friday was added to the state list of congregate care facilities that have reported COVID-19 exposure -- meaning that a person diagnosed with COVID-19 either visited, worked, or lived there while they were contagious.

No details are available except that Oak Crossing was added to the list. A message left with the nursing supervisor was not returned on Friday.

Pelican Landing in Detroit Lakes also remains on the list of congregant care facilities where COVID-19 has been reported.

The Cottages memory care unit at Ecumen in Detroit Lakes earlier was on the list, and reported that three employees had COVID-19, but has since been removed from the Minnesota Health Department list.

Facilities that have not reported a new exposure for at least 28 days are removed from the list. If a facility identifies a new exposure, they will once again be listed, according to the Health Department’s COVID-19 daily update site.
