The Town of Fort Erie is lowering flags at town buildings every Monday until March 8, 2021 to recognize the lives lost due to COVID-19.

“Fort Erie is joining the other municipalities of Niagara in lowering our flags to recognize those who have lost their lives due to COVID-19,” says Mayor Wayne Redekop. “The flag acts as a reminder of how fragile and precious life is and how important it is that everyone does their part to help save lives. I urge everyone in Fort Erie to continue following COVID-19 public health protocols during this pandemic.”

Flags will be lowered at Town Hall, Town facilities and the Fire Stations.

316 COVID-related deaths have been reported in Niagara.
