Flags to Fly at Half-Staff For COVID Victims

Todd PittengerFebruary 5, 2021

Flags across Kansas will fly at half-staff  Saturday to honor those who have lost their lives to COVI-19 and their families.

According to Kansas Governor Laura Kelly’s office, our state surpassed 4,000 Kansas deaths due to COVID-19. In honor of the lives lost and the families they left behind,  Kelly has directed that flags be lowered to half-staff throughout the state Saturday, February 6, 2021, from sunup to sundown.

“It is with great sadness that I am once again ordering flags to be lowered to half-staff in honor of the Kansans who have lost their lives to COVID-19,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “My administration remains committed to slowing the spread of COVID-19 and vaccinating Kansans as quickly and efficiently as possible. In the meantime, I know Kansans will do their part to protect their loved ones by following the public health guidance.”
