Honoring the California shooting victims

To honor the shooting victims in Monterey Park, CA, USPS facilities should fly flags at half-staff until Jan. 26.

President Joe Biden has ordered U.S. flags flown at half-staff to honor the victims of last week’s mass shooting in Monterey Park, CA.

Flags should be flown at half-staff until Jan. 26 at sunset.

To fly the flag at half-staff, hoist the flag to the peak for an instant and then lower it to the half-staff position. The flag should be raised to the peak again before it’s lowered for the day.

The USPS Administrative Support Manual has additional guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance.
