Texas Water Tower Lights Up Blue for Essential Workers

A water tower in Round Rock, Texas, was among the landmarks and buildings across the US on April 9 that lit up blue in tribute to essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Drone video posted on Facebook by the Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department shows the tower flooded in blue light, dedicated to “healthcare workers, first responders and essential workers who are on the front lines battling COVID-19.”
