The COVID-19 pandemic has put a temporary halt to life as we know it. For many of us, it’s meant a shift to working or schooling from home. Thanks to our digital connections, we’ve mostly been able to go on with our daily routines while still limiting our exposure to the coronavirus.

But while many of us have hunkered down in safety, others have reported to work just as they’ve done every day of their careers. They’re the essential workers among us, answering the call of duty with pride and purpose.

Today we introduce you to six local front-liners who epitomize the selflessness that’s powered us through this public health crisis. They’re our heroes. Our front-line heroes.
