Just read the email from the facility and this is excellent news! Essential Caregivers can be family members. We had our first in-person visit with my 85-yr MIL yesterday (Wed, July 22) since they locked down in mid-March. She had covid in May and had a full recovery. Even though it is highly likely she has antibodies, we still could only meet outside, with masks at 6 feet apart. There's light at the end of the tunnel and hope that people in power are understanding the profound impact that isolation has had on our elderly loved ones.
