COVID-19 Safety Protocols for Fraser Clinics and Programs

COVID-19 Safety Protocols for Fraser Clinics and Programs


The health and safety of Fraser clients and staff is a top priority. Please view this page for latest updates to our COVID safety protocols.

Fraser holds the safety of clients and staff as a top priority and all decisions made to-date have been based on the guidance we receive from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).  These protocols are continually updated based on current guidance and best practice recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We've created health and safety protocols to address the risk of COVID-19. Your health and safety is our first priority.

 


Mask Wearing

We ask all clients above the age of 2 and accompanying adults to wear masks at all times at Fraser regardless of vaccination status. We realize some clients might have difficulty wearing masks due to medical needs and we will accommodate client needs accordingly.

For services provided in the community based sites such as schools, Fraser will follow the masking guidelines of the specific location. If you have any questions, please follow up with your clinician.

If any of the above conditions apply, please take the Client COVID-19 Guide to determine when the client can safely return to in-person services. For best results, if the symptomatic client or/and symptomatic household member(s) are planning to test for COVID-19 or are pending COVID-19 results, wait to take the calculator until the results are known.

While you wait for results or during exclusion period, please transition the client’s appointment to telehealth if able by filling out Appointment Change Request form or contacting Client Services at 612-767-7222.

You can also request to reschedule or cancel an appointment through the same form.  You may also contact Client Services if you need immediate assistance.

For ARMHS services, if you would need to convert to telehealth, cancel or reschedule, please contact your clinical provider directly.


 

For Clients in Targeted Case Management

All meeting participants must complete the Wellness Assessment - TCM prior to the meeting. Case Manager will review results and confirm whether the appointment can proceed as planned. They will assist with rescheduling if needed.
