COVID-19 Resource Guide for Organizations

MNRAAA recognizes that the COVID-19 Pandemic has challenged our organizations to change the way we look at doing business.  As the State of Minnesota begins to open up many questions abound about how to safely open, certain requirements that need to be met and what to do if a positive test comes back.

MNRAAA has created a resource guide for organizations to review best practices and tips to assist them as we continue to open back up.  This guide is meant for review by each organization and that organization to choose its best way to go about re-opening.  For more information or assistance please feel free to reach out to us.

If you are looking for resources for older adults and caregivers, please contact the Senior LinkAge Line at 1-800-333-2433 or www.minnesotahelp.info.
