By now, you should be practicing social distancing! This Missouri Doctor is taking social distancing to another level in order to protect her family. Sounds like a good plan to me if you have the means to do it!
One Missouri doctor says she’s taking an extreme precaution to protect her family from coronavirus by self-isolating in a camper.
Dr. Tiffany Osborn with Washington University in St. Louis works in the emergency department and the intensive care unit. She says the hospital has been seeing a lot of COVID-19 patients recently, so she took steps to protect her family.
"We decided that probably the best course of action was for me to isolate myself from them,” Osborn said.
Osborn and her husband decided to shift money, which they had planned to use for a home extension, to instead buy a camper for Osborn to live in.
When she gets home from work, she goes directly to the camper to clean and sanitize before coming outside to sit on the camper steps to catch up with her family from a safe distance.
Stay safe everyone! Wash your hands, wipe down surfaces and practice social distancing if you haven't already!
