Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has been finding creative ways to connect with people to get them to adhere to physical distancing policies during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Her latest goes along with the "We Are Not Playing" initiative that launched two weeks ago. Lightfoot is urging Chicagoans to hang their favorite jerseys outside their windows as a way to show that the city is united during the pandemic.
Join me in showing love to our home teams and EVERYONE who's doing their part to #StayHomeSaveLives.

While the initiative is a fun, easy way to engage people on a serious topic, Lightfoot also gets to show off that jacket. It's designed to look like the Chicago flag, with light blue stripes and a red star, along with an all-caps CHI on the right sleeve. The left breast features the "We Are Not Playing" slogan, while the right breast reads "MAYOR" for some extra customization.
What will you hang in your window?
