Illuminated Landmarks Honor Lives Lost to COVID-19

Several landmarks across the state illuminated amber on Friday to honor Marylanders who lost their lives to COVID-19.

March 5 marks one year since Gov. Larry Hogan announced the first positive cases of COVID-19 within the state. Since the initial confirmation of COVID-19 in the state of Maryland, nearly 7,748 lives have been lost.

Gov. Hogan declared March 5 a day of remembrance to honor those who have lost their lives to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Flags were lowered to half-staff, and a ceremony was held at the State House where Hogan memorialized those lost, and urging all residents to continue to stay vigilant.

Several other buildings and landmarks were lit, including M&T Bank Stadium and Baltimore City Hall.
