No one has been more acutely affected by the pandemic than people who live in nursing homes and their families.
The state banned visitors four months ago as nursing home deaths spiked.
Today, outdoor visits are supposed to resume. But many facilities have told visitors it’s still not safe.
“One of them had visiting schedules already established, and they were canceled," says Paula Mueller who works with families and people in nursing care through her Cleveland area nonprofit, Elderly Advocates.
