In June 2020, the Geriatric Residential Três Figueiras, in the city of Gravataí, in Brazil, created a “hug tunnel”, a kind of plastic curtain with arm compartment so that relatives could maintain physical contact with the residents of the nursing home safely, without risk of transmitting the virus.
