Hamilton County, area cities to pay respects to COVID-19 casualties


Hamilton County and the cities of Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville and Westfield will conduct a vigil March 13 in order to pay respects to those who died due to COVID-19.

During the vigil, called a “Night of Reflection,” city and county officials will meet on the steps of the courthouse in downtown Noblesville to light a luminary in honor of every Hamilton County resident who died from COVID-19. Three hundred and seventy-five county residents have died from COVID-19.

In addition to county and city officials, fire, police and EMS vehicles will line the Square downtown for a ceremonial lighting of the lights to honor all the health care professionals and first responders who have fought on the frontlines of the virus.

The ceremony can be viewed live on Hamilton County Television. The public is strongly discouraged from attending. Instead, organizers are asking residents to place candles in their windows at 7 p.m. that evening to show their support. Free battery-operated candles will be available for residents to pick up the week of the event with more details to be announced at a later date.
