DeSantis issued a memorandum Friday that directed flags to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset at all state and local buildings.
DeSantis said in the memorandum that lowering the flags is a “mark of respect for the victims, their families, and the many affected by this tragedy.”
In addition to killing 49 people at the gay nightclub, gunman Omar Mateen wounded dozens of others. Mateen was killed by police after a standoff.
