Why are flags at half-staff?
Governor Murphy signed an executive order directing all flags across New Jersey be lowered to half-staff indefinitely to honor those we have lost -- and those we will lose -- as a result of this pandemic.
This is one of the greatest tragedies to ever hit our state, and our nation. We must have a constant and visible memorial of the tremendous personal toll COVID-19 is having on our communities.
Since families, at this time, cannot hold funerals for their lost loved ones, this is a way we can make sure their loss is not forgotten.
