Mayo clinic rainbow picture

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- “A welcome break” and “sign of hope,” that is how Mayo Clinic in Arizona described a rainbow that appeared overhead Tuesday.

The photo posted to the clinic’s Facebook page went viral with more than 2,800 likes and 346 shares the same day.

According to the clinic’s post, the picture features Alex Kruysman, a member of the Nursing Resource Pool in Arizona, decked out in protective gear, taking a quick break from screening vulnerable patients for COVID-19.

“More than just a ray of sunshine refracting and reflecting in the mist on a stormy day in Phoenix,” read the Facebook post. “It provided a welcome break and maybe even a sign of hope as it started making its way around Mayo Clinic in Arizona.”

While most of the country exercises social distancing, works from home, and in some cases, even quarantines, our health care professionals continue to work tirelessly to serve the sick.

“At Mayo Clinic, it's been all hands on deck to create, update, adjust and implement response plans to COVID-19,” reads the post. “And at times, it could feel a little overwhelming.”

The clinic’s followers flooded the page with comments thanking Kruysman and his colleagues for their work.

“Thank you for your excellence and kindness, along with devotion.” Posted Cheryl Salomone. “Very calming picture of making patients safe.”
