TILTON — The New Hampshire Veterans Home will lift the visiting restrictions imposed in late January as a precaution
against the spread of the flu, NHVH Commandant Margaret D. LaBrecque announced on Monday.
Effective at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 4, the Home will once again welcome visits to residents by family, friends, and the volunteers and service organizations that support the mission of providing the best quality of life for our elderly veterans.
"We're very pleased to be getting things back to normal," LaBrecque said. "Five and a half weeks without visits have been
very hard on all involved, even though it was necessary to protect everyone's health." Visits to grievously ill residents and those in hospice-type care were considered case-by-case during the quarantine, which took effect on Jan. 23, and protective measures such as masks and gloves were employed.
