Moran thanked police, fire and City maintenance workers: “I would like to thank police, fire, and all services and city staff for continuing to protect our City and keeping us safe. Almost 85% of city staff are working from home, but our service and maintenance workers are working daily to keep our City functioning.”
“Let’s do what we can to support our local restaurants and small businesses. And, as a former nurse, and the mother of two health workers at Providence, I especially want to thank the healthcare workers.” – said Moran.
The Sammamish Comment has published a list of Sammamish restaurants who are open for take out or delivery:
“Tonight, and every night at 8pm, I will join a global movement by standing outside my doorway to applaud and thank all of our frontline workers. Please join me in expressing our gratitude. We are truly all in this together. Never before has it been more important for our wonderfully diverse community to come together and support one another.”
The movement nightly applaud healthcare workers started in Europe a few weeks ago.
Below is a short video filmed on March 14 in Madrid, Spain, two days before a country-wide lock down took place. In the video, Madrid residents can be heard showing appreciation to health care workers.
