The pandemic is requiring social distancing from friends and family, leaving many craving physical contact with those they care about. A woman in New Jersey has a clever solution: shower curtains.

Melissa Molnar reportedly createda so-called “hug wall” from plastic shower curtains with two arm holes on each side to allow people to embrace.

Molnar’s children haven’t been able to hug their grandmother since the pandemic started, so she created the hug wall to celebrate a recent birthday.

"It's been so hard for everybody in the world, and it was refreshing to be able to hug my parents and see their reactions, and see my children's reactions who have been asking for months when this going to be over,” Molnar told News 12.
