Your visit to see your loved ones at a nursing home or assisted living facility may have to wait. Some homes like the Door County Medical Center’s Pete and Jelaine Horton Skilled Nursing Facility are not allowing visitors except for one designated person as an extra precaution due to coronavirus concerns and the seasonal flu. The decision is based on recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control earlier this week. Not being able to say hi and check in on loved ones during this time could be tough for families. Nursing Home Administrator Nancy Bohrman says they are helping families connect with each other if they cannot physically visit.
If you feel like a visit to the center is necessary, Bohrman asks you to contact them ahead of time and make sure you are completely healthy.
