Grey's Anatomy Is Donating Gloves, Gowns, and More to Hospitals During the Coronavirus Outbreak
As shows and movies halt production during the coronavirus outbreak, Grey's Anatomy isn't letting any of its props go to waste. In an effort to fight the coronavirus, Grey's and other shows like The Good Doctor, Station 19, and The Resident will be donating leftover medical supplies from filming to local hospitals, and it's times like these where Dr. Cristina Yang would be proud.
"At Station 19, we were lucky enough to have about 300 of the coveted N95 masks which we donated to our local fire station," showrunner and executive producer Krista Vernoff told E! News. "They were tremendously grateful. At Grey's Anatomy, we have a backstock of gowns and gloves which we are donating as well. We are all overwhelmed with gratitude for our healthcare workers during this incredibly difficult time, and in addition to these donations, we are doing our part to help them by staying home."
"To the entire team @theresidentonfox, thank you for this incredibly generous donation of #PPE from your set, including gowns, masks, gloves, and all the things our healthcare workers need to provide safe care for our community during #COVID19," Dr. Karen Law, a rheumatologist at Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital, wrote on Instagram. "Yesterday, I had a serious discussion with the residents about how, though supplies are low, a magical shipment of masks is unlikely to arrive. And yet, a magical shipment of masks DID arrive, in the form of this very generous gesture. This kind of community support means so much to our #frontlineproviders who are making many sacrifices to staff our hospitals and care for our community."
