Day of the Dead altar to honor COVID-19 victims

10/31/21

 

For a second consecutive year, San Diego County will set up a Dia de los Muertos altar to remember local residents who have died of COVID-19. Their photos will be on display Monday and Tuesday at the County Administration Center.

“The Altar is a wonderful Meso-American tradition that we have adopted at the County to recognize any San Diegan who has passed away, but this year, like last year, we are putting a special emphasis on the more than 4,000 San Diegans who have died from COVID-19,” Board of Supervisors Chair Nathan Fletcher said in a statement.

He encouraged the public to submit a picture of a family member, friend or co-worker. Visit SupervisorNathanFletcher.com/covidaltar to submit a photo.
