URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — Carle is honoring health care workers in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
The hospital has placed signs up outside entrances saying “Heroes work here” and “Grateful for our team.” The bridge over University Avenue also has signs reminding people to wash their hands in the windows.
Carle is asking its health care workers to highlight the work they do with pictures, using the hashtag #CarleCares.
Meanwhile, state leaders are asking Illinoisans to do their part to help health care workers. A Stay at Home order went into effect on Saturday. Under the order, people should only leave home for health and safety reasons, to pick up supplies or services that are essential, head to work (if that workplace is deemed essential) and to get fresh air while still maintaining social distance from others.
