A directive has been released by the White House in Washington, D.C. to be effective immediately. Please be advised that American flags, designed to accommodate lowering, should be lowered to half-staff immediately, in honor of the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The flags will remain at half-staff until the day of interment. Once that date has been established, another notification will be released to advise when the flags will be returned to full-staff. U.S. Flag Code says American flags shall be flown at half-staff from the day of death until interment of an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
