Remembering those we lost
In coordination with a proclamation from President Biden, we're ordering the lowering of the U.S. flag and the flag of Utah in memory of the 500,000 American lives lost to COVID-19.
Flags will be at half-staff through Friday, Feb. 26: https://t.co/aHpx757a1K pic.twitter.com/QoVvyTWsty
