Citing coronavirus, Minnesota proposes delaying new protections for seniors in assisted-living


April 29, 2020


Residents of Meridian Manor in Wayzata were evacuated in ambulances and vans after an outbreak of the coronavirus was detected earlier this month.

The Minnesota Department of Health has proposed delaying for one year implementation of new rules designed to protect thousands of seniors who live in lightly regulated assisted-living facilities - citing an urgent need to focus on fighting the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Since early 2018, the main state regulator of senior care has supported a plan to establish licensing and minimum standards of care for the state's 1,700 assisted-living facilities, which are home to more than 50,000 Minnesota seniors.
