Irma Prevette lives at Hillside Nursing and Rehab in North Carolina. Because of the decline in new COVID-19 cases in the state, the nursing home now meets the criteria for indoor visitations.
"It's been over a year since we've been able to see grandma," said granddaughter Michelle Ezzell. "Earlier, we could see her through the windows. But that's just not the same."
"I just wanted to bust out and cry," Irma said. "I hadn't seen them in ages."
About a dozen family members gathered at the nursing home for Irma's birthday, which falls on St. Patrick's Day.
