Infection Prevention and Control: COVID-19

Guidance and resources for infection prevention and control in health care settings.

Updated 8/2/21: The Delta variant can spread rapidly and there may be delays in identifying and reporting cases. Currently, MDH recommends eye protection for all health care workers (HCW) in all patient or resident care areas and when providing direct care.

In addition, MDH recommends all HCW wear a facemask regardless of vaccination status when in the health care setting. MDH recommends wearing a facemask during meetings and in the break room unless actively eating or drinking. Social distancing, limiting number of staff in a break room, or eating lunch outside are other recommended interventions to reduce risk of transmission.

Thank you for your continued partnership. For health care questions, please contact the MDH provider hotline at 651-201-5414.
