At the request of President Donald Trump, flags were to be at half staff through sunset on Friday October 6th. The Presidential Proclamation issued Monday stated: “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless act of violence” in Las Vegas on Sunday night. President Trump ordered that the flag be flown at half-staff at the White House “and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, October 6, 2017."
“I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.”
The presidential proclamation does not cover private businesses, but businesses often abide by it and also lower their flags to half-staff.
Looking at some of the flags around town Thursday afternoon, one can see who did or didn't abide by the proclamation:
