COLUMBUS — In Columbus Tuesday, drivers honked their horns and flashed their lights. No, they were not being rude. It was a show of support for healthcare workers and patients at Columbus Regional Health.

More than 30 vehicles took part in a "Community Convoy," taking a lap around the hospital.

A hospital spokesperson called it an "overwhelming show of support" that left the staff elated.

Vehicles were decorated with signs and balloons.

Figures from the state show Bartholomew County, where Columbus Regional Health is the main hospital, has recorded 367 positive cases of COVID-19.
