Health workers stand on middle of busy street, here’s why

To remind people to stay at home, two health care workers who work at a hospital in Denver, Colorado stand on the crosswalk during red lights. This is to block people who are going to a protest called “Operation Gridlock” which calls for the lockdown measures to be lifted.

In a tweet by Chase Woodruff (@dcwoodruff), he said that these health care workers stood on the crosswalk as a “reminder” why shutdown measures are in place. These doctors have declined to say their names and what hospital they work at.
