St. Albans to support health care workers with weekly 'parade'

By  | 

ST. ALBANS, Vt. (WCAX) The city of St. Albans is giving everyone on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis a special thank you with a parade!

St. Albans Police will lead the weekly medical appreciation support parade at 6 p.m. on Mondays. They will be joined by several other law enforcement officers from the area.

They plan to ride around the hospital with their lights and sirens going to show the staff they appreciate everything they're doing to keep patients healthy.

The parade will start at Fairfield Street at Crest Drive and proceed in front of the hospital counterclockwise around the Northwestern Medical Center complex, then exit back at Crest Drive and Fairfield Street.

They plan to do it every Monday.

This is just one of several efforts in our region to support medical workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

"It'll be whoever's available from our police department and local law enforcement, whoever's available," St. Albans Police Lt. Jason Weatherby said. "We're going to meet up and show our support and drive-through and do our thing."
