St. Charles resident Steven Toth visits with his son, Steven Toth of French Lick, right, and his daughter-in-law, Lynn, at the health campus in Jasper on Tuesday, the first day St. Charles allowed in-person visitations since the COVID-19 outbreak began. The state eased visitation restrictions at nursing homes last week by allowing outside visits. "We are still following all the same rules to keep everyone safe," said Sherri Byers, Director of Life Enrichment at St. Charles. "Everyone has to wear a mask, use hand sanitizer and stay six feet apart. We wish family members could welcome their loved ones with open arms, but this is still definitely lifting their spirits."
