A Group of Boy Scouts Created a COVID-19 ‘Hug Booth’ for Texas Nursing Home [WATCH]

A Texas Boy Scout troop helped residents at a nursing home in Texas by designing a “hug booth” to allow residents to find some comfort during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The booth has a plexiglass window that allows guests to stick their hands through large, sanitized gloves for hugging and other physical touches.

“They build it exactly the way we envisioned it,” Becky Hudson, the lifestyle director at the facility, told KTRK-TV. “They’re great, safe and come with gloves.”
