By our count, Seattle has now been under “hunker down” orders for 31 days. And, while we can’t relax distancing restrictions just yet, there are positive signs that conditions here, at least, are improving. But there is still a long way to go. The other side of the curve means more positive cases and, sadly, more deaths.
Here are a few clips of the moments of cheering, clapping, yelling, music, and song from around Capitol Hill as people continue to mark the nightly 8 PM remembrance and thanks for medical workers and those on the front lines of the COVID-19 response.

Every night at 8 pm I can hear people from all around my neighborhood, Capitol Hill, cheering. I feel like I’m not in on this but whatever it is I love it. #SeattleTogether #Seattle #seattlefightingcovid #COVIDー19 #Quarantine pic.twitter.com/QGmEyLYZVM
