March 14, 2020. New York City’s first known COVID-19 death was confirmed on this day. Since then, we’ve lost thousands of our beloved New Yorkers to this virus. They were our family, our friends, our frontline and essential workers, and – above all else – our fellow New Yorkers.
This year, March 14th, 2021 will be an official day of remembrance in our city. Join us online to honor those we have lost.
We’d like to encourage any New Yorker who has lost a loved one to COVID-19 to participate in the City’s memorial event by sharing the name and photograph of the person they lost. The photograph may be featured as part of the City’s ceremony.
