JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — U.S. senators, including Lisa Murkowski and Brian Schatz, are calling for a moment of silence to honor those who have died from COVID-19.
The moment of silence is planned for noon Monday.
The U.S. on Wednesday surpassed 100,000 deaths related to the pandemic, according to a Johns Hopkins University tally.
Murkowski, a Republican, said too many families have seen loved ones suffer or been unable to have proper memorials for those who have died.
Murkowski and Schatz, a Hawaii Democrat, are among a group of senators who also introduced legislation calling for the moment of silence.
