LANSING – A teen is writing to seniors who can’t see their families because of visiting restrictions during the coronavirus outbreak.

Lukas Liming, a 15-year-old from Lansing, is sending cards to senior centers and asking them to distribute them to residents.

Nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and other homes for senior citizens are restricting all but essential visitors to protect residents, with the exception of people in hospice or end-of-life care.


Liming started writing the letters to spread some joy, he said, because he knows it must be hard not to "see their family and not to have a person to person contact." 

"It’s already been roughly two days out of school, and I couldn’t imagine what these seniors are dealing with while not being able to see their family," Liming said.
