(WDBJ) - Governor Ralph Northam announced a flag order Monday for all United States and Virginia flags to be lowered to half-staff in honor of those who have died from COVID-19.

The move is in accordance with a proclamation from the White House to honor the 500,000 Americans who have died from COVID-19.

According to Northam, there are 7,486 Virginians accounted for within that number.

The order is to last through sunset February 26.
