COVID-19 Scare Can't Stop Love

While the COVID-19 coronavirus has resulted in the elimination of visits to health care facilities, 49-year-old Gary Laubenthal decided it wasn’t going to stop him from his every-day visit to the residence of his 89-year-old mother, Marguerite Laubenthal, a resident at the Good Samaritan facility in Algona.

According to his cousin Karla Gindling, Gary Laubenthal went to the facility Monday, knocked on his mother’s window, and the two were able to visit for a few minutes through the window, Gary dressed in his winter parka.

“Clearly, it will take more than the coronavirus to keep these two apart,” Gindling said.
