CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The governor has ordered flags be flown at half-staff across the state in honor of those lost to the coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Mike DeWine issued an order Tuesday that flags be lowered on all public buildings and grounds until sunset on Friday, according to a proclamation from his office.

DeWine’s order came after President Joe Biden issued an order that flags be flown at half-staff nationwide in remembrance of the 500,000 people who have died from COVID-19.
