Idle RVs Matched with Health Care Workers who Need a Place to Isolate After Long Hospital Shifts
(CNN) — For Mark Quale, an emergency room physician in Burlington, North Carolina, coming home after a long day at the hospital was as stressful as work itself. With two young boys, a wife and elderly mother-in-law at home, he knew that if he wasn’t cautious, he could spread the novel coronavirus to his own family.
So just as he arrived home from work, he would strip off his scrubs on the front porch, walk the specific route to his bathroom that was cordoned off by a tarp and wash all the germs off in the shower.
But today, Quale’s mind is more at peace because he’s able to isolate himself in a 31-foot travel trailer, and it’s all thanks to a Facebook group called RVs 4 MDs, which matches health care workers to local RV owners.
