Niagara Falls will be going blue tonight to honour nurses.

The Niagara Falls Illumination Board will be illuminating both the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls in blue tonight from 10 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. as a symbol of appreciation for nurses who are on the frontlines of the fight to contain COVID-19.

National Nursing Week is from May 11 to 17 in Canada.

May 12th is recognized around the world as International Nurses Day.

The World Health Organization also designated 2020 as “The Year of the Nurse and Midwife.”
