The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has updated their Assisted Living Licensure webpage. Information has been updated to provide further clarity on how to attend the Assisted Living Licensure hearing and methods an attendee can testify. In addition, MDH has posted its hearing exhibits pertaining to the Assisted Living Licensure Hearing which will begin on Tuesday, January 19, 2020.

  • Please take notice that the Minnesota Department of Health will hold a remote-access public hearing on the proposed rules for assisted living licensure. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the remote-access public hearing will replace the standard in-person hearing. Similar to an in-person hearing, the remote-access hearing will provide interested persons the opportunity to testify regarding the proposed rules. 
  • Administrative Law Judge, Ann C. O’Reilly will conduct the hearing on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Wednesday, January 20, 2021, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. If necessary, the department will schedule additional hearing days. You can register to join with video and audio through an internet connection with a computer or tablet. You also may participate by telephone.

If you would like to attend the Proposed Licensure Rules Governing Assisted Living Facilities hearing on January 19 and 20, please see instructions on how to do so at How to Attend the Assisted Living Licensure Hearing.
