Victoria community continues to rally together in support of frontline health care workers


While Victoria’s frontline health care workers continue to tirelessly fight against the global COVID-19 pandemic, our communities have been there to show them support in any way they can.

Most recently, a large nine foot heart-shaped wreath of roses was dropped off at the entrance to Saanich Peninsula Hospital with an accompanying ‘thank you’ sign from Eurosa Farms.

Homemade signs were also placed outside staff entrances of Royal Jubilee Hospital in an effort to brighten health care workers’ days, and some frontline staff were seen taking photos in appreciation of the small gestures.

The community has recently also shown their support to frontline workers by even children holding handmade signs expressing their heartfelt thanks to staff coming and going from Victoria hospitals, as well as Oak Bay residents cheering on workers during the COVID-19 pandemic every night at 7 p.m.

A Victoria bike shop has even offered a free bike after a healthcare worker had hers stolen, local hotels are offering discounted stays for those who need to self-isolate, and several police and fire detachments in the region have also staged convoys to show their unwavering appreciation for all of those who are battling on the frontlines right now.
