Flags at Half Mast - Corona Virus
Posted on Tuesday, February 23, 2021
Governor Roy Cooper has ordered all United States and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff beginning today, Monday, February 22, 2021 until sunset on February 26, 2021 in remembrance of those who passed away from the coronavirus. To date, more than 500,000 Americans including nearly 11,000 North Carolinians have lost their lives due to COVID-19. As a tribute to these many individuals and their families, all North Carolinians are encouraged to join in the remembrance of the many lives lost and to observe a moment of silence at sunset.
