COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – All U.S and Ohio flags will be lowered to honor COVID-19 victims, Governor Mike Dewine announced Friday.  

Dewine says lowering the flags not only honors COVID-19 victims, but also the life and service of Annie Glenn.

Public buildings and locations in Ohio, we’re flying flags half-staff to honor her life already, but Dewine included COVID-19 victims to follow President Donald Trump’s order.

According to the release, the flags will be lowered to half-staff starting immediately, until May 24 at sunset, and then they will be lowered again at sunrise on May 25, until noon, in observance of Memorial Day.
