To commemorate that fateful day, Southern Seven has coordinated a region-wide COVID-19 Day of Remembrance ceremony to honor the lives lost due to the pandemic, and to show continued support for those impacted by this deadly disease.
Ceremonies will be held at the Southern Seven Administrative Offices in Ullin and at each county courthouse in the Southern 7 region beginning at 2 p.m. You are invited to attend a ceremony of your choice or watch the Ullin ceremony live on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SouthernSevenHealthDepartment.
Each ceremony will include a moment of silence for the lives lost and each county will sign a proclamation to declare May 4 as COVID-19 Remembrance Day.
