Illustrative American and Delaware State Flags at Half Staff to represent Flag Status

On Thursday, President Biden ordered flags at all U.S. government buildings and facilities to be flown at half-staff until sunset on May 16, 2022 in memory of the more than 1 million Americans who have died from COVID-19.

In concurrence with the President’s order, Governor Carney has ordered both the U.S. and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities be flown at half-staff until sunset on May 16, 2022, and issued the following statement:

“More than 1 million Americans have lost their lives to COVID-19, including 2,928 Delawareans. Each person had family and friends. And each one was a precious life. We are thinking about those individuals and all of the families and friends who lost loved ones to COVID. We will continue to remember, honor, and pray for them.”

Additionally, in recognition of Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15 in accordance with federal law (36 U.S.C. 136-137), we pay tribute to peace officers across our country who have died, or who have been disabled in the line of duty. Flags will already be lowered on May 15, 2022, and are to remain lowered until sunset on May 16, 2022.
