Fairfax Nursing Home Residents.jpg

Residents at the Fairfax Rehabilitation and Nursing Center were finally able to visit with their families for the first time since October 2020 when visits had to be stopped due to the rise in COVID cases in the community. Due to some residents being fully vaccinated with their COVID-19 vaccine, they were able to be embraced by their family for the first time in more than a year. In this photo Debbie Goldberg, resident and her daughter, Lainie Walsh are spending time together. Those who were not vaccinated saw their family, too, from a distance and through plexiglass. There were a lot of happy tears, and although everyone was masked, smiles could be seend through them from the families and residents that day. The center hopes to be able to continue these visits and continue on the road to being able to open our doors back completely.
