Dorothy Campbell on Thursday visited Gene, her husband of more than 60 years, at the Life Care Center in Kirkland, where several residents have died of the illness, according to NBC Bay Area.
Campbell, who lives in nearby Bothell, Washington, wore slippers and used a cane as she chatted with her husband by phone with a window keeping them apart.
Her son, Charlie, a retired nurse from New Mexico helped her make the eight-mile trip from her home, according to the news outlet.
Meanwhile, several families held a rally to express their concerns about the long-term care facility.
“We have been complaining for days about the lack of information,” Kevin Connolly, whose father-in-law lives at the center, told KING.
