The Texas Governor's Mansion was lit up blue in honor of health care workers in Texas.

Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement thanking those on the front lines during a global pandemic.

"The State of Texas is forever grateful for the committed health care workers serving on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response," said Governor Abbott. "Their sacrifice and hard work cannot be overstated, and they play a crucial role in ensuring their fellow Texans have the care and support they need during this challenging time. I ask that all Texans join me and Cecilia in praying for these heroic Texans."

As of Friday, Texas ranked second in the handling of the pandemic according to Abbott.
