At today’s Corona Virus briefing Mayor de Blasio announced the City will host a ticker tape parade in their honor Health Care workers in Wednesday, July 7th,2021.
The city plans to celebrate health care workers with a parade down the Canyon of Heroes, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced during his Monday news conference with the press.
De Blasio said a parade would be a great way to honor the essential workers who have worked through the pandemic.
“I want to guarantee you one thing: that when that day comes that we can restart the vibrant, beautiful life of this city again, the first thing we will do is we will have a ticker-tape parade down the Canyon of Heroes for our health care workers and our first responders,” de Blasio said. “We will honor those who saved us.”
Doctors, nurses, police officers, firefighters, EMTs and MTA workers are among the essential workers who are reporting to work every day. There has also been an influx of medical professionals from the Armed Forces, and thousands of retired health professionals — from nurses to doctors to anesthesiologists — have volunteered their services in the city’s time of need.
De Blasio expects the celebration to be a moment of “rebirth” for the city.
“This one will speak to what kind of heroism that is intrinsic to who we are as New Yorkers, to our values, to our compassion, to our strength, our resiliency,” de Blasio said. “This parade will mark the beginning of our Renaissance.”
