As a mark of respect for the memory of those lives lost to COVID-19, all flags shall remain at half-staff by order of the Mayor of the City of New York, Bill de Blasio. A notice will follow as to when flags will resume full staff position. 

This includes all flags – the American flag, the New York State and City flags, and the POW-MIA flag – on all City buildings as well as stationary flagstaffs throughout the five boroughs.
