LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Community members thanked and prayed for anyone on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Friday evening at both Franciscan Health Lafayette East and IU Health Arnett people participated in a drive-up prayer service.
Both hospitals were full of packed cars with signs and messages.
The prayer service lasted about half an hour and people listened in using their car's radio.
For many it was the least they could do, but for for two kids, Kylin and Lawson Case, whose mom is a nurse, it was a daily reminder to always be thankful for those in the medical field.
"We want to thank the workers for everything they have done for the people who are sick and we want to prove it," said Kylin.
"We want them to feel better so we can go to restaurants, so we can be healthy once again," said Lawson.
Kylin and Lawson said they are proud of all medical workers.
Lisa Decker with Franciscan Health said she hopes everyone is still practicing social distancing.
She said even with holidays coming up now is not time to celebrate in-person.
Dr. Farman echoed that same message.
"This is where you have to be a bit of a grinder," said Dr. David Farman.
Farman is the medical director for Franciscan Health's emergency department.
"Be persistent," Farman said. "Be consistent. The message is the same as it was two weeks ago. It's really hard and we acknowledge that it is hard. Your politicians and your public health leaders, they all acknowledge that this is a difficult time, but this is a very important to stay the course and continue to follow to social distancing rules."
The stay-at-home order here in Indiana ends on Monday, April 20th, but it could be extended if the outbreak warrants it.
