The Bears #LightItBlue to support COVID-19 frontliners

Chicago Bears @ChicagoBears

Last night several cities across the United States shined a blue light on themselves in appreciation for the millions of essential workers that are on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic as part of a #LightItBlue initiative.

The Chicago Bears, the city of Chicago, and other venues across the state of Illinois did their part by lighting blue as you can see from these pictures.
