COVID-19 reporting at DHS-operated treatment facilities
DHS must report to the Minnesota Department of Health any confirmed cases of COVID-19 among patients, clients and staff in DHS-operated treatment facilities.
With some restrictions, the Department of Health may publish the names of certain DHS-operated facilities with confirmed cases of coronavirus on its Situation Update for COVID-19 webpage.
Even though the Department of Health may publicly identify some affected DHS facilities, DHS is subject to additional federal and state data privacy laws that do not allow the agency to release similar site- or program-specific data. However, DHS is allowed to report COVID-19 infections broadly by division.
Data is updated twice weekly. Last update: Jan. 20, 2021.
