It’s Good Friday, it’s a bit blustery outside and first responders are on the front line of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

But that didn’t stop health care workers at St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington from showing their appreciation and first responders doing the same.

Saint Francis Healthcare workers gathered outside the hospital at 11 a.m. as local fire, police and EMS vehicles lined up on Clayton Street, blowing their sirens for one minute in a show of solidarity for Delaware’s healthcare workers during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Wilmington Fire Department, Wilmington Police Department and St. Francis EMS took part with hospital workers, all maintaining social distancing.
