She wrote in her Twitter post, “My babies are too young to read this now. And they’d barely recognize me in my gear. But if they lose me to COVID I want them to know Mommy tried really hard to do her job.”

She ended her post with the hashtag #GetMePPE which is a trending tag that medical professionals are using to demand proper protective clothing from the government so they can battle the COVID-19.
