On Friday, May 15 at 7 p.m., Governor Polis is encouraging everyone to honor and remember the more than 1,000 Coloradan that we have lost to COVID-19. This coincides with the national Peace Officers Memorial Day, which the state will commemorate by lowering flags to half-staff.

To recognize the Day of Remembrance, the State Capitol, along with cities, counties and other organizations, will be turning their lights red at 7 p.m. to honor those who have passed. The state is encouraging buildings and businesses across the state to turn their lights red at 7 p.m. and for police and fire departments to turn their lights on at 7 p.m. for one minute.

Individuals who want to participate are urged to wear a protective face covering or mask at 7:00 p.m. for a minute of silence, to display their individual commitment to saving lives by helping prevent the spread of coronavirus. The governor is also encouraging people to post on social media to raise awareness about the remembrance event.
