As productions across the entertainment landscape shut down in a collective effort to flatten the curve of novel coronavirus contractions, some TV shows are finding creative ways to contribute to healthcare facilities during the crisis by looking into their props and costume collections for potentially life-saving supplies.
Grey's Anatomy and Station 19, both Grey's Anatomy universe shows have made donations of supplies in this trying time for hospitals. Station 19 donated N95 masks to the local fire station while Grey's is donating their backstock of gowns and gloves to local Los Angeles hospitals.
"At Station 19, we were lucky enough to have about 300 of the coveted N95 masks, which we donated to our local fire station. They were tremendously grateful. At Grey's Anatomy, we have a backstock of gowns and gloves which we are donating as well," showrunner for both shows Krista Vernoff said in a statement to TV Guide. "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."
这两部剧的执行制片人Krista Vernoff在发给TV Guide的声明中说：“在拍摄《19号消防局》时，我们很幸运地囤了300只大家急需的N95口罩，已经捐给了当地的消防站。他们表示非常感激。而拍摄《实习医生格蕾》时，我们存了白大褂和手套，也捐出去了。在目前极其困难的时期，我们对医疗工作者充满感激之情。除了捐赠物品之外，我们会待在家里，尽自己的一份力去帮助他们。”
TV Guide has also learned that The Good Doctor, which wrapped production in Vancouver earlier this month, is in talks with the local government about donating any needed supplies from set. The exact amount of the supplies was still being worked out at press time.
The Atlanta-based medical drama donated gowns, masks, and gloves to Grady Memorial Hospital to kick off this noble trend. Dr. Karen Law, a rheumatologist at the hospital, thanked the generous cast and crew with an Instagram post which detailed the donation.
The Rookie showrunner Alexi Hawley has pitched in too! "Raided The Rookie hospital set," Hawley tweeted. "With the season wrapped, we didn't have a ton, but I figured every little bit helps. Donated to UCLA Med."
