An employee left the grounds during a shift change at St. Therese of New Hope on Thursday.

Floyd Dalseth tried not to panic as he watched three of his roommates at the St. Therese of New Hope nursing home die within the past month. He asked if the deaths were caused by the coronavirus, but staff declined to share details.

Now Dalseth, 85, has contracted the deadly virus and fears he may never make it home. "I just want to get out of here," said Dalseth, who moved into the nursing home in October to recover from a bad fall. "Death is everywhere."
