PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Gov. Kate Brown on Thursday ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff until sunset on Monday, May 16, in memory of the nearly 1 million Americans who have lost their lives due to COVID-19. This includes 7,548 Oregonians.

"Every life lost to COVID-19 is a tragedy," said Brown. "With about 1,000,000 Americans who have died from this virus, there are too many families who are now without a friend, family member, or other loved one. Dan and I are keeping all those who have lost someone to this disease in our hearts. I hope that, as we remember all those we have lost, we collectively continue to help protect each other from this disease."

The full Presidential Proclamation is available on the White House's website.

    1. – “a lot”?….. a million? – “Prolife”? – you are such a fraud – just what are you trying to accomplish by acting the way you do?

    2. When you have a screen name like yours, you will have a hard time obtaining accurate information due to your poor brain washed research skills.

  1. Didn’t take long for the messaging to change… I thought these were all people who died “with” Covid- not “from-because of- or due to”. What happened to “related to”- underlying conditions- the narrative for two years ??? This is why intelligent Americans never bought into the hoax- too many signs out there that this has all been “made up” !

  2. She loves lowering the flag…

    That said –

    She should follow on with lowering it in remembrance of the 100,000 plus fentanyl deaths, to date, due to the border situation and the massive amount of this killing drug coming into America.

    And for Oregon’s multiple disadvantages under her rein to include worst state in the union for mental health and drug dependency resources.

    As for COVID – Kate would be right at home in Shanghai or North Korea. Her kind of “leadership”.

    1. – imagine if the governor did not occupy all the space in your head (your hate for her, that is) – you might actually have a scrap of gray matter available to think of one or two of your fellow Americans who died – priorities – not a fan of the governor either, but come on man – what’s your purpose in this life?
