People are doing their parts to help out during the outbreak of COVID-19 in Canada. NHL player Jeff Petry and his wife, Julie, are among those pitching in. They're paying for meals for healthcare workers who are on the frontline of dealing with the virus.\nIn a March 29 Instagram post, Petry announced that he and Julie would be setting up $2500 tabs at Mandy's and Notre-Boeuf-de-Grâce locations for hospital employees in Montreal.\nThey can call in their orders and show their hospital badges during pick up to get a free meal.\n"Julie and I are constantly thinking of all those on the front lines helping take care of others during this unthinkable time all over the world," Petry wrote, "but especially back in Montreal."\nPetry noted that these were two of his and Julie's favourite restaurants in the city.\nIn his caption, the Montreal Canadiens player noted that the "around the clock hours" these people are working to combat COVID-19 are "nothing short of heroic."\n"I’m sure they would say 'I’m just doing my job', but to us it’s more than that," Petry wrote. He acknowledged that many of these healthcare workers are dealing with the same workplace stresses when they go home.\nView this post on Instagram ATTENTION MONTREAL HOSPITAL EMPLOYEES‼️ . . Julie and I are constantly thinking of all those on the front lines helping take care of others during this unthinkable time all over the world, but especially back in Montreal. They have taken such good care of us & our kids over the years we can’t help but have those doctors, nurses and staff members on our hearts during this unfathomable time! The around the clock hours they are working to help fight this crazy virus is nothing short of heroic. I’m sure they would say “I’m just doing my job”, but to us it’s more than that. These selfless individuals are not only putting themselves at risk, but are also dealing with the same stresses that come along with these circumstances when they go home. We want them to know we are thinking of them & supporting them. . The Petrys just want to say thank you! But even “thank you” doesn’t seem like enough. A small way we can show our support is by offering a meal from a couple of our favorite local restaurants. So, starting tomorrow March 29th, @mandysalads (Westmount location only 514-227-1640 ) and @notreboeufdegrace (NDG location only 514-369-9090) will each have $2,500.00 tabs open for hospital employees to call in an order to pick up on us. All you have to do when you call in your order is tell them you work for the hospital, and make sure you present your hospital ID/ badge upon pick up (limit one meal per employee). We hope this meal will give you a smile during this stressful time! ♥️ The Petry Family . . #healthcareheroes #mtl A post shared by Jeff Petry (@jeffpetry26) on Mar 28, 2020 at 4:44pm PDT\n"We want them to know we are thinking of them & supporting them," the caption reads.\nQuebec currently has the highest number of cases in Canada. As of March 30, the province had reported 3430 instances of COVID-19.\nView this post on Instagram Family photo day! Thankful to have this crew at or watching every game!

Serge Ibaka recently FaceTimed with Toronto public health officials to help get the word out about what people should be doing during this time.\nPetry and other NHL players have time on their hands now, as the entire season was suspended. The NBA also suspended the rest of its season after a player tested positive for COVID-19.
