On April 16, Powell Library and Royce Hall were bathed in Bruin blue to show appreciation for health care workers, first responders and all other essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inspired by the #LightItBlue campaign, the #LightUCLABlue tribute took place every Thursday for weeks, shining a blue light on those UCLA landmarks and Covel Commons.

All across the U.S., cities, businesses and institutions have been lit up in blue to honor the heroes who make it possible for us to stay safer at home and mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.
