Nursing Home visits are now allowed!

According to a report, the state has adjusted the guidelines for nursing home visitation. The ban is now officially lifted. The new guidelines allow visitors to meet with nursing home residents in an outdoor setting with social distancing implemented.

If the nursing home is in a parish that has less than ten percent positive cases, then indoor visits are permitted. Visitors will also be required to wear a face mask, and wash hands. Some facilities may have limitations to the number of guests visiting at one time. Before heading to visit a loved one, be sure to contact the facility.
