Richmond healthcare providers are joining medical professionals around the world in a campaign called “Stay Home: Save Lives” to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Medical staff at the Richmond Hospital took to social media to post pictures of themselves wearing gloves and face masks while holding signs saying, “We stayed at work for you, please stay home for us.”
According to a post on the hospital’s Facebook page, a staff commented that they are “working hard to develop processes to guide (them) through this uncertain time.”
“(Medical professionals) have to leave their families and risk exposing their families to come to work. This is hard. Hard for everyone. But if we all do what’s needed and stay home, practice social distancing and treat each other with kindness we have a chance,” said the Facebook post.
Other posts beg community members to stay home not only for themselves, but for close family members and friends.
