May 2021 – COVID-19 Update

We know that many of you are anxious to come back into our facility and are wondering when we might open it back up to you. As a group, we certainly miss having you in our facility and we look forward to the time when we can (safely) workside by side with you in the care of your animal companions.

Unfortunately, while vaccines have become readily available, and the majority of our staff are in the process of being vaccinated, the infection rate in St. Louis County and in Minnesota remains high.

The typical patient visit at NSVH is a 30-40 minute process and this extended periodof exposure is far more than one might have at a grocery store or a gas station, so we need to be extra diligent in making sure that the risk of COVID-19 transmission is at a minimum.

For the time being, with infection and hospitalization rates still high in the county and the state, we will continue to provide curbside service. As these rates (hopefully) decline and when the state opens up more, we will reassess our stance on curbside care.

We appreciate your continued patience as we navigate this difficult time. Please know that the health and safety of our staff and you, our valued clients, is our primary concern.

Your friends at North Shore Veterinary Hospital
