Health care workers across the country have been separating from their loved ones to lower their risk of coronavirus infection, but finding a place to stay can be tough.
A popular Facebook group “RVs for MDs” is gaining national attention for matching health care workers with RV owners. Through the group, workers can find a free temporary place to stay while they fight the coronavirus or recover while sick.
On the page, RV owners are encouraged to post pictures of their RVs and share where they’re located or how far they are willing to travel. The page also has information about how to volunteer and help facilitate RV matches.
Health care workers across the country are now living in RVs, often right in front of their homes.
Clint Bell owns the Kampgrounds of America site in Chula Vista and said he knew he had to get involved somehow.
Bell is offering free campsites for medical professionals staying in an RV.
“For us and for our family, it was a no brainer,” Bell said. “If the medical professional has the ability to stay in a driveway or perhaps side yard, obviously staying close to home is paramount, but for the individual who is looking to shorten their commute time, this KOA location is a really great option."
