Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward has ordered flags at all City facilities to be lowered to half-staff to coincide with President Donald Trump’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities be lowered immediately to honor coronavirus victims.

“We join the country in morning those who have lost their lives to coronavirus and those who have suffered because of the pandemic,” Woodward said. “Today we remember the 31 members of our community who have died because of coronavirus and send our sympathies and condolences to their families and friends.”

Flags will remain lowered throughout the Memorial Day weekend. Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
