Schuyler County will be holding a tribute for community members who were lost due to COVID. The event will take place on Wednesday, December 8th, at 8:30 AM in front of the County Courthouse. There will be a small memorial presentation where a wreath and flags will be placed on the wall of the County Courthouse in honor of those who passed away. Community members are invited to attend.
“COVID has touched each of us in some way. We all know friends and family who contracted the virus and were lucky enough to survive. In our community, 18 families were not that fortunate, so it is important that we, as a community, remember those who lost their lives and bring attention to the dangers COVID continues to cause,” said Deputy County Administrator Fonda Chronis.
“Each bird on the wreath represents a deeply-felt loss by a family and the community. It reminds us to keep working hard to protect each other.” shared Interim Schuyler County Public Health Director Nancy King, MD.
