LANSING, Mich. (WWJ) -- The holiday season has officially arrived and officials with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services are reminding the public of its recently updated guidance on visiting hours at long-term care facilities.

Those who want to spend time with family and friends over the holidays at long-term care facilities can do so, but are urged to follow certain protocols in place amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Long-term care facilities include nursing homes, homes for the aged, adult foster care facilities, hospice facilities, substance use disorder residential facilities or assisted living facilities, according to MDHHS.
