Here's why Mercy Mt. Shasta is lit up in blue lights
Curious about the blue glow you see emanating from Mercy Medical Center Mt. Shasta?
The hospital will be lit up with blue lights from this evening until March 14 to mark the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization determining COVID-19 a global pandemic on March 11, 2020.
"COVID-19 has brought uncertainty and fear, and as we reflect on the challenges from this last year we honor and celebrate the perserverance and resiliency of our staff," the hospital said in a press release.
Also lit in blue will be Dignity Health's other north state hospitals, including Mercy Medical Center Redding and St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff, and Redding's Sundial Bridge.
