331 people in Cambria County have now died from COVID-19 and one local organization will be honoring those lives lost this week. “In This Together Cambria” was created last year to encourage residents to do their part in ending the Pandemic. They will honor those who have died from the Virus on Tuesday.
They’ll be presenting “Lights of Remembrance — a Memorial for Cambria County COVID victims” from 5:30-8:30pm online. Over 300 candle luminaries will be lit near the Stone Bridge in Johnstown to represent each person lost. The Stone Bridge will also be lit in red and yellow lights for COVID-19 Awareness. The “In This Together Cambria” creator says it’s important to realize each of those statistics represents a human life lost.
The public is invited to stay home and watch the event through live stream. Information on how to view can be found at: Facebook.com/InThisTogetherCambria
