Grandmother receives first hug since beginning of pandemic

(CNN) – Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provided new guidance for fully-vaccinated people, there have been some moments of unbridled joy.

For some, it’s the first time being face-to-face with one another, which includes a grandmother in New York.

Video shows a grandmother hugging her granddaughter.

The woman who shot the video, Jessca Shaw, says that this was the first hug her mother has gotten since the beginning of the pandemic.

The grandmother’s doctor even wrote out a prescription saying “you are allowed to hug your granddaughter.”
