“Essential workers have put their own health, and indeed their own lives, at risk for the well-being of all New Jerseyans,” said Bucco (R-25). “By designating March 9 as ‘Covid-19 Heroes Day,’ we will help bring awareness to these courageous individuals and honor them for their service and sacrifice.”
The resolution, SJR-82, would recognize all essential workers who have been called upon to keep New Jerseyans safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Essential workers includes, but is not limited to: health care professionals, first responders, caregivers, food service workers, postal workers, and transportation workers.
“Our health care professionals, first responders, caregivers, and so many other essential workers heeded the call and put themselves at risk during our time of great need,” added Bucco “Establishing a day each year to honor these brave men and women is the least we can do.”
