This Friday, February 26th, I have the privilege of performing Jazz Standards at a local senior facility's Hug Tunnel event. One of the many hardships created by the COVID-19 crisis is the need for restricted interactions between the elderly community and the outside world as a safety precaution and preventive measure to protect our senior citizens from the spread of the virus. Unfortunately these safety restrictions include face-to-face family visits and much needed hugs.
The Hug Tunnel is a way for family and friends to visit while minimizing exposure to the outside environment and COVID dangers. Check out this YouTube video for more information on Hug Tunnels:
