March 3, 2021 - Half Staff Alert - Florida

Governor DeSantis has ordered flags to half-staff on March 3, 2021 in honor of the lives lost to COVID-19.

From Governor DeSantis' State of the State Address - 

"We are saddened by the thousands of Floridians – and hundreds of thousands of Americans – who have died with COVID. And we sympathize with the family members who in many instances were not even permitted to see their loved ones in person, at a nursing home or in the hospital.

To honor those who have died with COVID and to recognize the toll the virus has taken on family members, the state of Florida will be lowering the flags to half-staff on Wednesday."
