Ellen Pompeo Tells Fans to Stay Home After Doctors Reach Out Asking for Her Help

Ellen Pompeo, who plays a fictional doctor on the beloved series Grey’s Anatomy, is speaking out with a message to fans on behalf of the doctors who are serving as real-life heroes right now.

The actress is telling fans to stay at home throughout the global health crisis to help flatten the curve and make sure hospitals don’t become overcrowded.

“I have been asked to make another video to ask everybody to please stay home,” Ellen said in the video on Instagram on Thursday (April 2). “I’ve had a lot, too many, phone calls and emails from doctors and nurse friends of mine, even the Governor of New York, his office called today to ask me to help, once again, to get the word out for everybody to please stay home. Please!”

“The healthcare professionals, the doctors, the nurses, anyone who works in a hospital, they’re at their wits end and now they’re starting to die. We’re not doing enough. Everybody, just please stay home. And if you know someone who is not taking this seriously and who isn’t staying home, please talk to them. We have to stay home. It’s all their asking us to do. It’s not that hard,” she said before signing off.
