In coordination with President Biden’s proclamation, Governor Doug Ducey today ordered flags at all state buildings be lowered to half-staff for five days starting tomorrow, February 23, 2021, to honor the thousands of lives lost across Arizona and the nation due to COVID-19.
“As we pull together and continue to work to save lives and fight COVID-19, we also grieve and pray for all the lives we’ve lost in Arizona and across the nation to this disease,” said Governor Ducey. “We mourn each and every life lost — loved ones, family, friends, neighbors. Every life is precious, and we will continue to work hard to protect more Arizonans and overcome the devastating effects of the pandemic. In coordination with the President’s proclamation, I’ve ordered flags at half-staff starting tomorrow to honor the lives lost. Our hearts and our prayers are with all those impacted by COVID-19.”
