The COVID stage 4 lockdown has ended, however, some modified restrictions remain in place, including limits on social gatherings and wearing masks in some indoor settings, or wherever you can't socially distance.
Karen wanted to encourage people to be kind to essential services workers. So she painted a big ‘thank you’ sign and put it up at the entrance to Healesville.
After losing her job early in the lockdown, Healesville resident Karen was feeling a bit down. “Usually if I am down, I find doing nice things for other people is what I do to feel better.”
After hearing about a young supermarket worker having a hard time at work, Karen grabbed a piece of spare wood from her garden and painted a thank you sign. Each couple of days she would make another sign to thank the people who were working to keep us all fed, safe and looked after.
