Many local nursing homes, which stopped accepting visitors to reduce the risk posed by COVID-19, are now allowing visitors again.

Some families were forced to shout to relatives from yards away or attempt to speak with them through windows.

While the virus remains a concern, Texas will now allow two designated family members to visit a nursing home resident. Others may visit indoors from behind plexiglass in parts of the state without elevated numbers of COVID-19 cases.
