WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) this week launched a campaign inviting people to thank a health care worker in Connecticut who is on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Those who want to share are encouraged to post a video to Instagram with the hashtag #CTHERO and tag @SenChrisMurphy. Murphy will plan to highlight some of these stories on his accounts.

"Even a small gesture can go a long way, especially during these trying times. That's why I'm asking people in Connecticut to record a short video thanking a health care worker in Connecticut. These heroes deserve our appreciation, and this is just one way we can show it," said Murphy.
