Putnam County Flags at half-staff in remembrance of all those who have been lost to COVID-19

Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell has ordered all U.S. flags on county properties to be flown at half-staff in remembrance of all those who have been lost to COVID-19.

“We are a small county and these are not just numbers to us, the people we have lost are our friends and loved ones,” County Executive Odell said. “We will honor their memories as we continue to be vigilant against the spread of this virus.”

As of Tuesday morning, we have lost 15 Putnam County residents to COVID-19. The flags will be lowered from April 8 until further notice.
