Nursing home visitation order goes into effect Thursday


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) — Visitation rules can now be relaxed some at intermediate care facilities, just two weeks after Gov. Mike DeWine and Ursel McElroy, director of the Department of Aging, made the announcement.

Indoor visits will be allowed under certain circumstances, with visits scheduled in advance, in an approved area and for a maximum of 30 minutes.

Rules will be relaxed at intermediate care facilities run by the state department of developmental disabilities as well. These changes were made due to the temperatures dropping in fall and winter, making it more challenging for outdoor visits.
