Coronavirus

TAMPA (WFLA) – The Tampa Bay Lightning lit up Amalie Arena blue on Thursday as part of the national #LightItBlue movement in support of everyone on the frontlines fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

The campaign was inspired by the #ClapForOurCareers campaign that brought communities together around the world in the wake of COVID-19.

Over 130 buildings, bridges, and landmarks took part in the UK with many more expected to join in the U.S. in the coming days.
