Briana's husband, Ryan Culberson, received a text from his wife, who has been working as a nurse in the ER at a hospital in North Carolina amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, in which she described experiencing symptoms of the infection.
"I started coughing bad at work this morning and was short of breath. 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 also encouraged 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!"
Last week, Ryan 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."
