According to a news release from WellStar Health Systems:

In a show of respect for Cobb County’s healthcare heroes on the frontlines, the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office organized a parade on April 16 to pass by Wellstar Kennestone Hospital and briefly stand outside their vehicles at attention as a show of respect to those on the frontlines during these uncertain times. Crowds of nurses, doctors and medical staff watched, waved and cheered as patrol vehicles rolled by and officers shouted their praises. A similar drive by was held at Wellstar Cobb Hospital in Austell as well.
