Gov Brown Orders Flags Flown at Half-Staff for COVID Victims

Governor Kate Brown ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff until sunset, May 16, in memory of the nearly 1,000,000 Americans who have lost their lives due to COVID-19. This includes 7,548 Oregonians.

“Every life lost to COVID-19 is a tragedy,” said Governor Brown. “With about 1,000,000 Americans who have died from this virus, there are too many families who are now without a friend, family member, or other loved one. Dan and I are keeping all those who have lost someone to this disease in our hearts. I hope that, as we remember all those we have lost, we collectively continue to help protect each other from this disease.”
