Charles County, MD. --  The Charles County Citizen Notification System is reminding residents that flags in the county will be flown at half-staff through sunset on August 8.

President Trump has ordered the United States Flag to be flown at half-staff effective immediately until sunset on Thursday, August 8, 2019. 

This is done as a mark of solemn respect for the victims of the terrible acts of violence perpetrated on August 3, 2019, in El Paso, Texas and August 4, 2019, in Dayton, Ohio. 

As a matter of protocol, the Maryland flag is lowered to half-staff. No flag may be higher than the United States flag.
