*Please provide an address if you would like the photo to be mailed back.
As of May 20, nearly 500 beloved county residents have died as a result of COVID-19.
During this pandemic, many family members and friends were not able to say goodbye to their loved ones due to public health concerns or travel restrictions.
This is a painful situation during an already difficult time of grieving.
While we are still in the midst of this pandemic, and working as a community to lessen the spread of COVID-19, it is important to provide some means for those families who have lost a loved one to this virus to honor their memory.
The County is also planning a memorial at Rose Tree Park to those who have lost their lives to COVID-19 when it is safe to gather publically. More information will be released at a later date.
