A caring grandson didn’t let coronavirus get in the way of hanging with his grandma and developed an inventive way of curing the isolation blues by playing a game of tic-tac-toe on her window.
Erik Nisson, 28 had been self-isolating in Cheshire, Connecticut but decided to visit his grandma, Patricia McGalliard, 92, affectionately known as Moo Moo, at her assisted living facility.
Erik brought some markers to play games with Moo Moo and draw on a window which they could both see each other through.

The pair played hangman and tic-tac-toe, drawing on the shared window and spending some quality isolation time together.
Erik said: ‚She was really excited to see me, this was a surprise visit as she didn’t know I was home so she was excited
‚Hopefully this inspires some other people to get creative with ways they can see their grandparents or parents who are unable to leave the house.‘

For grandparents all over the world, being protected from the pandemic has meant a piercing distance from their loved ones.
While children don’t seem to be getting seriously ill as often, they can be infected and spread the virus. It’s been a jolting change for many.
While most people who catch the disease suffer from symptoms like fever and cough and recover in a few weeks, some get severely ill with things like pneumonia.

COVID-19 can be fatal, and older people who have underlying conditions are the most vulnerable.
The sudden change has been challenging for kids‘ parents too, many of whom are trying to work from home and balance childcare.
Many grandparents are looking for moments of brightness. They’re replacing chats on the porch with friends with Facebook conversations, or connecting with church congregations through video-messaging apps like Marco Polo.
