New nursing home guidelines take effect Saturday

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - Beginning Saturday, more indoor visitations will be allowed at senior homes across the state.

Officials say the facilities must have no new infections in the preceding two weeks and the infection rate in the surrounding county must be no more than 10%.
