So Scher made his rounds, not as a doctor, but as the Easter Bunny bringing smiles to the neighborhood, even leaving some eggs and treats for the kids, making sure to stay a safe distance away, WYFF reported.

“Honestly, with all that has been going on...all of which I see every day, this was a welcome moment of joy and happiness. For that hour or two, life was normal,” Scher told ABC News.
