New Yorkers #ClapBecauseWeCare to thank workers on Coronavirus frontlines


New Yorkers stepped outside for a couple minutes Friday night – still adhering to social distancing – to recognize and show gratitude toward essential workers on the frontlines of the New York City’s coronavirus fight.

Social media lit up with videos shortly after 7 p.m. of people across New York City clapping, yelling and cheering for the health care workers, grocery store workers, first responders and other essential workers still at work.
