U.S. flags will fly at half-staff on federal and military posts through Sunday, as President Trump orders a remembrance of the nearly 100,000 people who have died from COVID-19 in the U.S. Earlier this month, flags in the hard-hit state of New York flew at half their normal height to honor of those lost to the pandemic.

Flags will be lowered from Friday through Sunday’s sunset, in a show of national mourning and remembrance.
