St. Joseph’s Senior Home in Woodbridge, New Jersey is seen on Sunday, Dec. 13, 2020. A sign mentioning no visitations allowed was posted at the entrance door. Annette Kociolek, 93, lived here until she was transferred to CareOne at Hanover in Whippany, New Jersey. Within five days, she passed away. (Erica Seryhm Lee for NPR)
