PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Pittsburgh Steelers legend is sharing a message of hope during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a Twitter video posted Thursday, Bill Cowher started by urging everyone to stay home as the virus spreads.
He then thanked the health care professionals and first responders who are working to keep everyone safe.
“We support you,” Cowher said. “And remember, fear and anxiety is a big, major health concern as well. Remember, try to stay positive, we’ll get through this.”
