MORA Update 7-23-2020

Masks on, everyone!

Minnesota Governor Walz’s new executive order requires masks in all indoor settings.

Masks have been required throughout MORA Residential Homes for months, and now required in all indoor settings — public buildings and private businesses and organizations. This includes our office locations. We will post new signs soon, as well as will update our Preparedness Plan, please stay aware. The MDH website below answers detailed questions about masks:

Updated travel restrictions: see below. Our safe behavior and conversations with are more important than a changing list of states.

UPDATE: Travel outside of Minnesota
MORA continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation nationally. Given recent changes to out-of-state COVID cases we are updating our internal travel procedure.
Please contact HR (Stacy Richards srichards@mtolivet-mora.org or 952-767-4831) and your Director prior to planning travel to discuss details of your travel plans and any pre-cautions that may be required upon your return.
As of July 21, 2020, should staff travel to the following states, staff may be subject to a 14-day quarantine, depending upon details of travel plans. If they are unable to work from home, the quarantine will be unpaid or will require the use of their PPL before re-turning back to work.
This list is subject to change based on the constantly changing COVID-19 situation.
We will continue to monitor and update you as we learn more.
