Nursing Homes

A statewide conversation with Minnesota’s Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan.  It’s your opportunity to ask questions about Minnesota’s response and plans during this COVID-19 pandemic.   

This week the Lt Governor answered questions about school's reopening in the fall, isolation of people in long-term care facilities and pandemic fatigue.

Kyle Hedlund is Executive Director of Grand Village nursing home in Grand Rapids and was recently appointed to the Rural Health Advisory Commitee by Gov. Tim Walz.  He joins Heidi Holtan and John Bauer on the Friday Morning Show.  They talk about the changes made at Grand Village since the COVID-19 pandemic began, how they are keeping their residents and staff safe, and what they are doing  to keep spirits up during these difficult times.

Today on Making Sausage we talked with DFL commentator Colleen Nardone and Grand Village Executive Director Kyle Hedlund.  Colleen has a long history with how the legislative process works and talked about what budget targets the DFL was happy for, and what may have been better.  The session ended Monday night, but lots more work to be done in conference committee and a special session.
