Health care workers around Canada have been working tirelessly to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy during COVID-19. While being in a period of social distancing and self-isolation, Vancouver residents are showing their love and appreciation for the workers the best way they can. Even Vancouver police officers have been joining in on the health care cheer and they are not being quiet about it.
Every night, Vancouverites have been hitting their patios, balconies, and driveways to cheer on health care workers in the province.
But according to several videos posted online, it’s not just residents that are doing this.
Fellow first responders, including the Vancouver police, have been getting into the spirit of things.
By turning on their sirens incredibly loud, literal fleets of police vehicles have been out on the streets showing their gratitude for health care workers everywhere.
A video of the parade was captured and posted online.
In the video posted on Reddit, you can see dozens of police vans with their sirens on driving by the Royal Colombian Hospital at around 7 p.m.
The parade is made up of police vans and fire trucks and all of them have their sirens turned on to full blast.
Needless to say, it is the loudest cheer yet.
As the vehicles drive by the hospital, you can even see a hospital worker in scrubs standing on the sidewalk waving to all the first responders driving by.
The video is blowing up and people in the comment section can't help but express their gratitude for hospital workers.

Every day, thousands of health care workers are putting their safety on the line to protect others.
If you want to join in on the cheer, all you need to do is step out onto your lawn or patio every night at 7 p.m. and start expressing your gratitude.
From banging pots to screaming at the top of your lungs, anything works to show that you care.

People have been posting videos of the city erupting with applause and while it’s loud, it has nothing on the parade hosted by Vancouver police.

As of March 26, health officials have confirmed that over 55 health care workers in the province have tested positive for COVID-19.
Doctors and government officials are now begging the public to stay inside and self-isolate in order to limit the growth of COVID-19.
Despite the pleas, people are still gathering in large groups.
