In a statement, Warren said this has been a very trying year and she encourages people to visit the city of Rochester’s website to share a loved one’s name, image and sentiments.

“This memorial is dedicated to our citizens whose lives were cut short by the coronavirus,” she said.

The online memorial is part of a future project to create a physical memorial in the city.
