There are hopes that nursing home visits might return within weeks after evidence that vaccines have lead to a significant drop in infections and deaths among residents.  

The number of coronavirus cases reported from nursing homes has fallen by 82% in a single week which the HSE says must be attributable to the rollout of vaccines.  

In the week leading up to February 14th there were 482 lab-reported cases from nursing homes, in the following week up to February 21st there were 91.
