BENTON (WSIL) -- Dozens of people lined up to see their loved ones Thursday at StoneBridge Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Benton.

StoneBridge held a special Friends, Family and Community Parade for residents, as COVID-19 continues to keep long-term care facilities closed to visitors.

Benton Fire and Police took part as well, while residents held signs, practiced social distancing, and enjoyed the parade.

"So they were very, very happy to see them all in the parade. We had a wonderful turnout, the community, everybody was great. Just to show love and support, just to get together and have a good day.," said StoneBridge Administrator Kelly Bishop.

Bishop said while the residents are not able to meet in-person with their family and friends, they are staying strong and the staff is committed to their well-being.
