Dr. Theresa Greene Child Custody
Dr. Theresa Greene tested negative for COVID-19 and says she faces an impossible and “cruel” choice between working in the emergency room and seeing her child, according to 6 South Florida.
Her ex-husband, Eric Greene, filed for sole custody of the little girl “due to mother’s significantly heightened exposure to COVID-19,” according to court documents. Judge Bernard Shapiro granted the request this week, saying it was “in the best interests of the child” because of the pandemic in Florida.

“How can you tell me because I’m divorced that I can’t come home — obviously I have to shower — but that I can’t come home and hug my daughter,” said Greene, who called the decision discriminatory against divorced parents and has filed an appeal.
“I was just shocked that the judge would take this stance without talking to medical experts and knowing the facts and take it so lightly, take my child from me and not think of the effect on her, her mental and psychological well-being,” she said.
