Dauphin County officials encourage everyone to go blue on April 17 to show support for first responders, healthcare workers and everyone on the front line of the fight against COVID-19

HARRISBURG, PA (April 16, 2020) – Dauphin County Commissioners Jeff Haste, Mike Pries and George P. Hartwick, III are asking residents to help show support for front-line responders by “going blue” on Friday, April 17.  

Together, we can honor healthcare workers, first responders and everyone on the front lines of our fight against the coronavirus, said the commissioners.

Here are ways to show your support: 

  • Wear something blue and take a photo or video and upload it to social media using #DauphinCountyGoesBlue.
  • Use a blue background in your social media profile picture.  
  • Display blue ribbons or signage.

Beginning Friday morning, the fountain and spotlights outside of the Dauphin County Courthouse on Front and Market streets in downtown Harrisburg will turn blue.

Anyone can participate in this thank-you campaign by wearing blue and using #DauphinCountyGoesBlue.
