KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As the country continues to battle the spread of coronavirus, many nursing homes, including those in the Kansas City metro, are encouraging visitors to stay away to protect the elderly and at-risk population from the virus.

“Saturday Night Live” star and Kansas City native Heidi Gardner posted on Instagram on Thursday that as a way to help, she would be sending cards to nursing homes across the United States. In her stories, she shared one card addressed to the Bridgewood Health Care Center in Kansas City, Missouri.

“Please join me and send a card to a nursing home,” Gardner posted on Instagram. “Senior citizens need our love more than ever right now.”
