#Following months of taking precautions, a couple who were married for nearly six decades died of COVID-19 after an at-home haircut, their son said.

#Mike and #Carol #Bruno, from #Chicago, died 10 days apart in the hospital, #Joseph #Bruno said, after his mother #Carol #Bruno and his sister visited his apartment for a haircut, CNN reported.

“#My sister works in a salon and so just before #Thanksgiving my sister got a COVID test and was negative, and she quarantined for three or four days after she got the negative test,” #Joseph #Bruno told WLS-TV. “I needed a haircut, and she said, ‘#Well, why don’t I just come by and cut your hair so you don’t have to come into the salon.'”

#During the visit on #November 20, which lasted all of 40 minutes, #Carol #Bruno was seated near an open window to help with ventilation, and all three of them wore masks and social distanced.

“#Had I made that sacrifice and, you know, didn’t spend, you know, 30-40 minutes with my mom — they would still be here,” #Joseph #Bruno said.

#Just one day after the family visit, #Bruno’s sister began to display COVID-19-like symptoms, and #Joseph #Bruno and his mother followed soon after.

“#Even when we thought we did everything right, we still got it,” #Joseph #Bruno told CNN.

#Carol #Bruno was admitted to the hospital on #Thanksgiving but was later discharged as her condition started to improve. A few days later, she was readmitted and put on a ventilator.

#Mike #Bruno, who did not visit his wife in the hospital, also began to show symptoms of COVID-19, and he was hospitalized about two weeks after #Thanksgiving, #Joseph #Bruno told CNN.

#Carol died of COVID-19 a day before #Mike was put on a ventilator on #December 14, according to her obituary. A little over a week later, #Mike followed — just two days before #Christmas, according to the CNN report.

“I think the thing that gives us peace is knowing that my dad didn’t know my mom passed away,” #Joseph #Bruno told WLS-TV. “#To know that they went within less than 10 days of one another is such a beautiful thing. #And, you know, I would give anything to bring them back but I’m so happy that they are together again.”

#Mike and #Carol #Bruno are among tens of thousands of #Americans who died of COVID-19 amid surges in cases across the country. #As of #Tuesday, more than 19.5 million cases were confirmed, and nearly 338,000 people died of COVID-19, according to data from #Johns #Hopkins #University.
