On Tuesday,  January 19, 2021, Summit County will join counties across the nation in a moment of silence to honor Americans who have died from COVID-19.

At a meeting on January 13th, the Summit County Council passed a proclamation to memorialize the hundreds of Utahns and six Summit County residents who died from the virus. All residents of Summit County are encouraged to stand in tribute and honor those who have succumbed to COVID-19.  

Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox has ordered bells at the Utah State Capitol to ring at 3:30pm as part of a  national COVID-19 memorial initiated by the Presidential Inaugural Committee. The bells at the Capitol in Salt Lake City will ring 15 times in remembrance of the 1,500 Utahns who have died since March 2020 of the virus.

"We will never forget the heavy toll this deadly virus has taken in the state, and we pray for comfort and peace to the families and friends left behind," Gov. Cox said. "We hope all Utahns will join in honoring those we have lost during this national moment of remembrance."

At 5:30pm ET, President-elect Joe Biden will appear at a memorial for COVID-19 victims at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
