Hundreds of people showed up Sunday night to show their support for workers at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital during a drive-in prayer vigil.

OH invited the community to join together in supporting the healthcare workers battling COVID-19 on the front lines.

“Let’s show that we’re in this together, even if we’re six feet apart,” read a post by Owensboro Health promoting the event.

A line of vehicles filled around the hospital parking lot, where people honked, cheered and flashed their headlights from parked cars to show encouragement as employees walked in to work.

Doctors and nurses waved back from behind hospital windows to show their appreciation.

The event was organized by a community resident Jackie Howell Tipmore.
