Sadness Over Visitation Ban

This no visit policy----and I understand its importance during such a terrible pandemic---is doubly hurting my mom. My birthday is coming up fast, and during the last 35 years she's been here on or near my birth date. Obviously, this isn't going to happen this year, and now that Mom's hit 77 with COPD, she's awfully sad at not spending time together. These safeguards are depressing a lot of guys in here along with me. With no end in sight to my sentence, it worries me I'll not get to hug any of my family or friends ever again.
