Signs are popping up in front of hospitals across the country.

They're a way to recognize health care providers who are working so hard to care for people who are sick, including those with COVID-19, and trying to stay ahead of the spread.

The signs say "Heroes Work Here."

Here in Lafayette, the signs were put up by the College of Nursing & Allied Health Professions at UL Lafayette.

There are signs at Lafayette General Medical Center, University Health Center and in front of Our Lady of Lourdes' Regional Medical Center and Women's and Children's Hospital. Wednesday, signs were being put up at Hospice of Acadiana, Iberia Medical Center, Opelousas General Hospital, and between Lafayette Surgical Specialty & Heart Hospital.

Signs will be up until Saturday afternoon.
