An Auckland couple is heartbroken they can’t visit their premature baby currently being cared for in Auckland Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit, Newshub reports. Tiffany Mao and Gray Royston haven’t been able to see their 13-day-old son Boston for 10 days because they’re close contacts of a COVID-19 case. Boston was born almost two-and-a-half months early, and his parents are devastated they can’t be with him. In isolation in NICU, not even the nurses can hold him. “He hasn’t been held for the last ten days because he’s not allowed out of his incubator,” Royston says. “Our son has tested negative three times,” Mao adds.
