Jennifer Aniston and Jimmy Kemmel are teaming up again and this time it is to help a nurse who has been contracted with COVID-19. They did so during Thursday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! The segment opened with Kimmel talking to Kimball Fairbanks, a cardiovascular nurse from St. George, Utah, about her experience with the coronavirus.
Fairbanks explained that she tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week. In response to the diagnosis, she was furloughed from work and must self-isolate for two weeks. She admitted that she wasn't sure how she contracted the virus, but likely got it while at work.
"I kind of felt like I got hit by a train, but I think I just have really mild symptoms," she said, noting that it felt like she had a head cold combined with the flu. Fairbanks added that her symptoms feel "decently manageable."
Kimmel said that he wanted to cheer her up and brought Aniston into the video chat. "I just have to say God bless you and all of you that are out there, doing what you're doing," Aniston told Fairbanks. "I don't even know how to express my gratitude to everything that you guys are doing and putting your health at risk and all of that. You're just phenomenal."
Fairbanks later told Aniston and Kimmel that she has not been able to cook while distancing herself from her family, so she has been relying on delivery services to provide her food.
"That's good cause you know what Jimmy cooked up?" said Aniston. "You're gonna be getting a $10,000 gift certificate from Postmates."
Fairbanks was initially speechless and Kimmel joked, "But you have to use it all in one shot." The host also shared that Postmates was giving gift cards to all of the nurses that work on her floor at the hospital.
"Oh behalf of all of us, I think Jen said it very well, we are very, very grateful to what you and all these health care workers are doing," said Kimmel. "It's so far above and beyond. It really is unbelievable."
