Mayor Tyer is asking children to post their completed coloring page on her Facebook page.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mayor Linda Tyer called upon kids in the community to share a coloring book page with first responders and health-care workers. 
"I think our health care workers and first responders could use some happiness and cheer during these difficult days," Tyer said. "They are working so hard."
The mayor shared a video on her Facebook page Monday asking the city's children to print out a Crayola coloring page, color it, write a message on it, and then post a photo of their work under the video.
"I would like you to help me say thank you to our nurses, doctors, police officers, firefighters, and EMTs that are working so hard to keep us safe," she said.
Tyer shared a link on the post where the page can be downloaded.
She also reiterated the importance of staying home during the COVID-19 outbreak.
"I know it is difficult and you are probably getting restless but it is really important," she said. "You must stay home. You must stay healthy."
