Adams County to Observe May 15 as a Day of Remembrance

To honor those who have lost their lives due to COVID-19, Adams County will join many municipalities, counties, and sports organizations across the state in a series of remembrance events. Moments of silence will be observed at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 15; Friday, May 22; and Friday, May 29.

Adams County Sheriff’s Deputies are encouraged to turn their lights and sirens on at the designated days and times, and the governor’s office has asked all municipalities and law enforcement agencies to participate.

May 15 also coincides with Peace Officers Memorial Day, which we will commemorate by lowering the flags at all county buildings.

Community members can participate in these events by asking friends, neighbors, and family members to join in the moment of silence and by wearing protective face coverings or masks for a few minutes, symbolizing their willingness to do their part.
