I was so angry at not being able to visit my beloved aunt who died during the pandemic that I decided to try and make a difference. I asked if the LinkedIn community thought this was a critical issue and you responded with over 8,000 views and comments. You agreed as did many others including our State Assemblyman Chris Burdick.

Today, New York State has in place a law that gives nursing home residents the right to family visits during a pandemic. I encourage each and everyone reading this to adopt a similar law in your state. You CAN make a difference.
