Families can still make "window visits" at nursing facilities

Window visits are still allowed at nursing homes and assisted care facilities in the state of Wisconsin.  After an initial recommendation was issued Monday by the Wisconsin Board of Aging and Long Term Care against window visits, the guidance issued was then rescinded shortly after since it conflicted with the “Safer at Home” order.  Window visits became popular after guests were banned from entering the facilities in order to protect residents who are the most vulnerable to the coronavirus.  Tama Bagley, owner of Anna’s Healthcare in Sturgeon Bay said earlier this month that local families have been using window visits frequently.  She shares other ways families are connecting with physical restrictions in place. 



Bagley encourages people to stay home and safe as much as possible.  Anna’s Healthcare currently cares for over 50 residents.
