SALEM, Ore. -- Gov. Kate Brown has ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff in memory of the more than 500,000 Americans who have lost their lives due to COVID-19, including 2,155 Oregonians. 

"Every life lost to COVID-19 is a tragedy," Brown said. "With more than 500,000 Americans who have died from this virus, there are infinitely more people who are now without a friend, family member, or other loved one. My thoughts are with all those who have lost someone to this disease and, to all Oregonians, I want you to know I remain committed to ensuring that we do everything we can to stop the spread and save lives. I hope that, as we remember all those we have lost, we collectively continue to help protect each other from this disease."

Flags will be flown at half-staff until sunset on Friday.
