A ban was placed in mid March on the visitation of seniors in assisted living facilities and nursing homes. Governor Ron Desantis has announced Tuesday that he will now lift that ban.
This is following the recommendations of a nursing home task force that have been meeting for the past few weeks.
They recommended that family members be allowed to visit their loved ones, one or two at a time, wearing masks and gloves while maintaining social distancing standards.
In order for a facility to let this go into effect, the facility has to go 14 days without a case of Covid-19 from patients or staff.
