"Just to continue to have that recognition really helps us keep going throughout the day and do our best that we can," said COVID-19 nurse Lexi Kraus.

"We wanted to show just a small gesture of our appreciation not just for healthcare communities, but also recognition on how tough this has been on small businesses like restaurants," said Tipper, a Democrat representing Jefferson County.
