Patrol cars from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, along with vehicles from the Department of Public Works, Emergency Management Division and District Attorney’s Office, circled Valley View Center for Nursing Care and Rehabilitation on Thursday with flashing lights and blaring sirens as a tribute to the staff’s hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is gratifying to see so many people come together to recognize the inspirational work that Valley View Administrator Laurence LaDue and his dedicated staff have performed during this challenging time,” said Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus, who drove his vehicle in the parade. “As we have seen throughout the country, nursing home residents are susceptible to the COVID-19, and Valley View has been on the frontlines of the battle against the disease.”
