City of Chicago residents can submit stories to the online memorial, ‘Chicago Remembers’ to honor the legacy of those lost to COVID-19.
The City of Chicago has unveiled a web-based, virtual memorial to remember and honor thousands of Chicagoans who have lost their lives to COVID-19. The virtual memorial will host submitted stories and photos of residents that will be publicly available for all to see.
“In light of the current situation, the way we mourn and celebrate one’s life needs to be reimagined,” said Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot. “The Virtual Memorial is just one way to help Chicagoans cope with the sudden loss of their loved one to COVID-19, but also to celebrate their lives and memories.”
COVID-19 has taken thousands of Chicagoans from us.
They are not forgotten
