Sky Tower glows blue to acknowledge front-line workers

Tonight, the Sky Tower will be lit royal blue to acknowledge and support the tireless efforts of front-line emergency services staff engaged in the fight against COVID-19.

The initiative was the suggestion of an Auckland Police officer, who wanted to thank medical workers that are putting their own lives at risk to save others.

It also comes as New Zealand marks one week since moving into lockdown alert level four, and over 6,100 retired and part-time health professionals have returned to the workforce to support their colleagues; working as doctors, nurses and care and support workers.

The Sky Tower will be lit blue until Sunday 5 April.
