Many of L.A.'s famous landmarks lit up in blue, like the Staples Center, the nearby Convention Center, LA Live, the iconic tower at City Hall, and the pillars at LAX -- even the Harry Potter castle at Universal Studios Hollywood.

The L.A. blue salute glowed brightly in the city's undying support for the doctors and nurses, and everyone in the health care profession who have sacrificed a lot to win the war against coronavirus.
