Memorial Day services at Highland Cemetery have been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Leslie J. Campbell American Legion Post 15 in Iola announced the cancellation Wednesday. The annual ceremony honors military service men and women.
The pandemic has forced the cancellation of mass gatherings to avoid the spread of the virus, and Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly has prohibited gatherings of more than 10 until Monday. After that, the governor’s plan limits gatherings to 30 people. After June 1, gatherings are limited to 90.
