Cheer for health professionals and essential service workers tonight at 7 p.m.

West End group wants everyone to make some noise to thank front-line workers in the battle against COVID-19

A worldwide movement acknowledging the vital role caregivers are playing in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic will be repeated in Vancouver, starting tonight.

At 7 p.m. tonight, March 20, everyone is encouraged to step outside of their homes and make some noise as a very public and loud display of appreciation to our hard-working health-care professionals and essential workers keeping the city running in these uncertain times.

The Vancouver West Enders community group is inviting the entire city to join them from their balconies and windows to show their gratitude for the healthcare workers on the front lines of fighting COVID-19, as well as all the essential workers who are putting themselves at risk so Vancouverites can have access to food, transportation and other vital services.

So, honk your horn, bang a pot, sing a song, applaud or yell tonight and every night at 7 p.m. to show you care. It’s an easy gesture and, since most people are all home self-isolating or in quarantine, it doesn’t take a lot of effort and the kids will love it.

Make sure to spread the word to friends and family and make some noise at 7 p.m.

Share photos and videos on social media using the hashtags #TogetherWeCanDoIt and #Cheer4HealthWorkers.
