The Brazos County Health District, along with a group from Texas A&M, are teaming up for a special memorial this weekend to honor the lives lost to the pandemic.
BRYAN, Texas – The Brazos County Health District, along with a group from Texas A&M, is hosting a special memorial on April 10.
The University’s Center for Population Health and Aging Community Connect for Health team, along with student volunteers, will place flags around the health district to honor those who have lost their lives to COVID-19.
Brazos County Health District Workforce Development Coordinator Mary Parrish said they felt it was an important way to show support for family members left behind.
The flags will be placed on the side of the health district on Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Parrish said family members will be able to place a blue ribbon with their loved one’s name around a flag on Saturday.
“It can be difficult to go through the process of grieving and knowing that their loved ones may just be seen as a number reported daily. It gives dignity and respect to those who have passed away,” Parrish said.
Parrish said they will also set up a vaccination clinic for those who wish to get vaccinated.
