City, nation light up blue for health care workers

ST. LOUIS – Some of the most iconic landmarks in the St. Louis area, as well as around the country, will be bathed in blue light tonight. They’re joining the #LightItBlue campaign, which is showing solidarity with health care workers across the world who are on the front lines of the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The St. Louis Science Center announced Thursday on its Facebook page, “Tonight the McDonnell Planetarium will be blue to salute healthcare providers as part of the #LightItBlue campaign. Thank you to all who are fighting on the front lines against COVID-19.”

And Mayor Lyda Krewson said via Twitter: “Tonight, St. Louis will be looking a little blue, but for good reason. We’re flipping the switch all across the city,” she said – the Gateway Arch, the St. Louis Wheel, the Planetarium in Forest Park and the thousands of new LED lights downtown.

Cities around the U.S. are participating in #LightItBlue.
