Indoor visits at these facilities have been off limits since March

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Local nursing homes and assisted living facilities are reopening to indoor visitors Monday.

Indoor visits at these facilities have been off limits since March. In June, Ohio began allowing outdoor visitation at assisted living facilities and at nursing homes in late July.

These visits will be limited to two people at a time for 30 minutes. Visits will be in a designated area of a facility and visits must be scheduled in advance.

The decision will be up to each facility to determine if they’re ready. With the recent move to Risk Level 3/Red in Mahoning and Trumbull counties, it is advised to check if your loved one’s nursing home is moving forward with reopening.
