PUEBLO — Church bells in Pueblo will ring at noon Thursday as a way to remember and honor the lives of over 300 Puebloans who died due to COVID-19.

Pueblo Mayor Nick Gradisar asked local churches to ring their bells for three minutes to "honor those Puebloans and send our collective sympathies to their families."

This will come one day before the city's curfew expires as the health department is seeing a drop in daily cases of the virus.

At the end of October, Gradisar issued the initial two-week curfew saying Pueblo was "going in the wrong direction" when analyzing the number of positive cases, positivity rate and hospitalizations.

Puebloans are asked to ring bells outside or honor lives lost with a few minutes of silence in prayer or remembrance.
