Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen posted a message on Monday to healthcare workers who are on the front lines battling the coronavirus pandemic.
"As we all stay home and follow the guidelines of our health officials, I just wanted to give a big thank you to the doctors, the nurses, and all of our healthcare workers for keeping us safe, for going to work, and fighting this pandemic on the front lines every day," Van Wagenen said. "But it's those of you that are getting people healthy, getting people back home to their families, and putting yourselves at risk -- sacrificing for the better good of our entire community. Thank you to all of you and let's get through this together. Thanks."

The MLB season remains on hold amid the pandemic, with the earliest date for Opening Day remaining May 10.
However, the expectation is that the delay will last much longer.
"Obviously, with what's going on with the virus, it's something we've never seen before, so we're swimming in unfamiliar waters as far as being able to anticipate what's going to happen in the future," Mets manager Luis Rojas told MLB.com last week. "But as far as adjusting and adapting, like we're all doing in our lives, I think [the baseball mentality] has helped us as a team."
