Governor Mike DeWine has ordered flags flown at half-staff in remembrance of the more than 500,000 Americans who have died due to COVID-19, including nearly 17,000 Ohioans.
All United States and State of Ohio flags on public buildings and grounds will be flown at half-staff until sunset on Friday.
This order was issued on Tuesday in accordance with the order issued by the President of the United States.
