Louisville announces Memorial Day for COVID-19 victims

During the first personal COVID-19 press briefing in two years, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced that Friday will be a day of remembrance for those lost to the deadly virus.

The day was chosen because it was the day two years ago that the city confirmed its first COVID-19 death, said Fischer, who asked members of the community to keep a moment of silence at noon to mark the day.

He also asked people to wear something green and light their home green that day.

City Hall, Metro Hall and Big Four Bridge will also be with green lights in honor they lost due to COVID-19. The color green, meaning compassion, has been used throughout the state during the pandemic to honor those lost to COVID-19.
