Friday afternoon, a temporary memorial honoring the 600 people in the Brazos Valley who died of coronavirus will be constructed in front of the Brazos County health district building in downtown Bryan.
Public information officer Mary Parrish says the event originated from Texas A and M’s center for population health and aging.
“right now, I believe there will be about 600 flags set out, which includes the seven count region of the Brazos Valley,” said Parrish.
Flags will be placed Friday afternoon and will remain through April 15th. On Saturday, you can honor those who have died from COVID by tying a blue ribbon with the individual’s name to the flag. That will happen as the health district is offers free vaccination shots and boosters Saturday from 10 am until 2 pm.
