Wake Up Tri-Counties Public Health Heroes Day with RaeAnn Tucker from the Henry and Stark Health Department


Thursday, May 11th, 2023, is officially Public Health Heroes Day. Governor J.B Pritzker made the proclamation official on Thursday, May 11th, the same day as the official end of the Federal COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Proclamation. Going forward, May 11th in Illinois will be set aside to honor the heroic public health workers who put their lives on the line during the pandemic to care for and educate the public about COVID-19. From getting needed information out to mask mandate updates, to providing vaccinations, to being directly on the frontline fighting the virus, Public Health Heroes more than deserve the honor of their very own day. We talked with RaeAnn Tucker from the Henry and Stark County Health Department on Thursday about Public Health Heroes Day and what the fight against COVID-19 looks like going forward.
