WHITE PLAINS – Over 2,000 Westchester County residents have died from COVID-19 and today (Wednesday), Westchester County Executive George Latimer is directing flags at all county facilities to be flown at half-staff in their honor.
The flags will be lowered as a part the county’s COVID-19 commemoration event taking place one year after the first confirmed case in Westchester.
“Westchester has suffered great losses and we must honor them in each way that we can. Flying our flags at half-staff is a message to all of us that we will not forget the tragedy that this virus has caused. Each death is a person, not just merely a point on a chart,” said Latimer.
