RIVERVIEW, Mich. – While nursing home residents can’t have guests during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, some surprise visitors dropped by to brighten their day Thursday.

Three alpacas paid a visit to the Rivergate Terrace Nursing Home in Riverview.

Fin, Thunder and Lego spent time outside the windows of residents. They are currently stuck in their rooms because of COVID-19.

The animals will return to the nursing home when the pandemic ends so the seniors can meet them up close.
