Hug Is Just What the Doctor Ordered for New York Grandmother

A hug was literally what the doctor ordered after a long year of COVID distancing for New York grandmother Evelyn Shaw.

Evelyn was “nervous to return to the world” even after getting her vaccines, her daughter Laura Shaw Frank tweeted.

So, Laura and her daughter, Ateret, decided to get their family doctor to write a prescription for Evelyn, recommending a good dose of granddaughter hugs.
