Join Us For The City Of Santa Fe 2023 COVID-19 Memorial Day

12 Noon Monday, March 6, 2023, On The Santa Fe Plaza

The City of Santa Fe warmly invites all community members to attend the 2023 COVID-19 Memorial Day at 12 p.m. on Monday, March 6, 2023, on the Santa Fe Plaza. 

In February 2021, the Governing Body unanimously adopted a resolution designating the first Monday in March as COVID-19 Memorial Day. This event is held to remember all who have passed away, fallen ill, or who continue to suffer from the impact of COVID-19, as well as to honor essential workers. 

Citywide, Santa Feans are urged to participate in the memorial by observing a moment of silence at 12 p.m., and by adding their voices or noise to a moment of appreciation for essential workers at 12:01 p.m. (ringing bells at houses of worship, honking car horns, rounds of applause, etc.)
