A memorial is planned for tonight in Sioux City for victims and survivors of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
“It’s so important how this pandemic has impacted so many, especially in our community.”
That’s Cassie Thompson, a local advocate, and member of the on-line group Siouxland Wears Masks. The group helped organize the event, along with Iowa Educators for a Safe Return to School.
Yesterday, volunteers hung 211 white ribbons in downtown Sioux City. One for each person in Woodbury County who have died of complications of COVID-19.
