[03/13/20]   Dear valued patients, students, members, and clients;

Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we have been working diligently with our health system to provide whatever support we can to ensure the safety of our community members.

Therefor the Human Performance Center will be cancelling ALL activities through Friday, March 20th. We will be re-evaluating the situation next week and will communicate our plan moving beyond that time frame.

I apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and flexibility. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any concerns.

Avera St. Luke's Hospital

Please call 1-877-At-Avera (1-877-282-8372) if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or feel you have been exposed to COVID-19. This toll-free number is staffed 24/7 by registered nurses who will determine if you need to be seen by a provider. For more information go to Avera.org/COVID-19.

Avera St. Luke's Hospital

Beginning today, Avera St. Luke’s Hospital and Clinics will allow only one designated visitor per patient, and that visitor cannot have been exposed to COVID-19, have influenza, or flu-like symptoms, which are similar to COVID-19 symptoms. Avera is also asking patients with scheduled outpatient procedures or those that may be discharged to have one designated person with them or for transportation.

At this time, Avera is not allowing visitors at Avera Mother Joseph Manor, as those individuals in long-term care are at high-risk of COVID-19. This will extend to Nano Nagle Village and Davis Court. Consult with your local facility for patients who are in hospice or end-of-life care.

We will also not be hosting Mass or Adoration until further notice.
