Area landmarks beam blue for health care workers Thursday
BATON ROUGE - Along with landmarks across the United States, local iconic buildings illuminated in a shimmer of blue lights to honor healthcare workers battling the coronavirus in hospitals, medical calls and other care facilities.
Lights turned blue on buildings at 8 p.m. central time Thursday.
Among the 150 landmarks country-wide are the State Capitol, Governor's Mansion, LSU Tiger Stadium and Southern's F.G. Clark Activity Center in Baton Rouge.
