Briana Culberson is an ER nurse at a North Carolina hospital — who has been working around-the-clock shifts amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. During one of her shifts this week, she started developing symptoms of the deadly virus and was sent home.
“I started coughing bad at work this morning and was short of breath.” Briana’s husband, Ryan Culberson, shared a text from his wife on Instagram Thursday. “They put me on [a 14-day] quarantine and sent me home. I have to call occupational health in the morning to follow up and see what’s next. No fever yet but I have chills,” the text from Briana read. “I’m going to sleep upstairs and probably will have to stay away from you guys as much as possible until I know more.”
Ryan Culberson scolded his followers to abide by health and safety guidelines put forth during this time.
“Woke up to the text every medical family dreads this morning. Guys please take these warnings a little more seriously. It’s not just your family you’re putting at risk!” he wrote in the post. “Not looking for sympathy, just trying to raise awareness. Please keep Briana in your thoughts and prayers!” He wrote on March 26.
Last week, Ryan Culberson showed his appreciation for everything his wife is doing amid the coronavirus outbreak in a post on Instagram. “I get my wife back tomorrow morning! 4 of the last 5 nights she’s had to work the ER. I’m really not jealous of her job but super grateful there’s people that’ll do it!” Ryan wrote in a post that also featured a photo of himself with Briana and their sons, Owen and Troy, along with “#nursesrule.”
Coronavirus (COVID-19) poses a serious public health risk with young and old people dying globally. Please stay home and stay safe everyone.
Let’s all keep Briana Culberson and her family in our prayers.
