From time to time on Neurosurgery Blog, you will see us cross-posting or linking to items from other places when we believe they are relevant to our readership. Today’s post originally appeared on FOX 5 Atlanta on May 26, 2021. In the video segment, Franklin Lin, MD, FAANS, a neurosurgeon at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., and his wife decided it would be safest for him to move out of his home and into a hotel at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“A couple weeks turned into three weeks, three weeks turned into four weeks, and the pandemic just kept getting worse,” said Dr. Lin. He would spend time connecting with his family over Zoom and across the fence of their Marietta home. After getting vaccinated, Dr. Lin wanted to make sure that he couldn’t unknowingly transmit the virus to others. In February, as it became clear that likely wouldn’t happen, he came home after spending 11 months in a hotel.
