HARRISBURG, PA (SBN) — Families are returning to visit relatives in Pennsylvania nursing homes, bringing a year of painful isolation to an end for many seniors. More than a year after the COVID pandemic put nursing homes and long-term care facilities in the Commonwealth in lockdown, visitors are being welcomed back. With most residents now having been vaccinated, the infection rate has plummeted and federal officials have recommended easing restrictions on visitation.
