(WKBN) – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has ordered for flags to be flown at half-staff through sunset this Friday, Feb. 26.
It’s to remember the 500,000 American lives lost to the coronavirus.
The governor said flags should be lowered at all public buildings and grounds.
President Joe Biden made the decree on Monday for federal properties.
Biden also held a national moment of silence and lit a candle to mark the half-million deaths.
