In the wake of the current coronavirus pandemic, people are concerned about bringing packages into their homes. Households that have someone who is immunocompromised or has underlying health conditions are on alert. A FedEx driver deserves all the recognition he is getting after disinfecting a package he delivered to the home of a little girl with an autoimmune disorder. 

Carrie and Emma Blasi

Carrie Blasi’s 11-year-old daughter, Emma was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was a little over 2-years-old. Her glucose levels are kept under control thanks to her continuous glucose monitor and insulin pump, so that lowers her risks if she were to contract COVID-19. Blasi and her husband also worry who would take care of Emma if either of them became ill.

“We have a sign on our door for packages/mail as our 11 year old daughter is a type 1 diabetic,” Blasi tweeted. Fed Ex package

From the pictures, you can clearly see that the package had clearly been wiped down since you could see where the liquid stained the scanner sticker. The driver jotted a quick note on the top of the box to let the family know he had disinfected the package. 

The driver’s good deed was also caught on Blasi’s security camera, which she has since shared to YouTube.

The Blasi family was able to virtually meet Justin, the Fed Ex driver, and his family to thank him for what he did for them. Blasi said, “They are our new friends, for life. The world needs to be more like Justin.”
