Michigan residents asked to lower flags

LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has ordered all Michigan state flags and US flags to be lowered to half-staff on Saturday in honor of the lives of law enforcement officials that have been lost in the line of duty, including those who have died of COVID-19.

Michigan businesses, schools, local government buildings and other organizations are asked to join in lowering their flags on Saturday.

“Michigan’s law enforcement officials will forever be remembered for their bravery, courage, and dedication to our great state. Every day, these heroes put their lives on the line to protect the lives of the public, especially during the pandemic, serving at times of great uncertainty. As we remember their lives and legacies, my heart is with the loved ones of these great public servants," said Governor Whitmer.

Flags can be returned to full-staff on Sunday.
