From an email:

“Washington National Cathedral will toll its funeral bell 800 times today at 5 p.m. ET, in memory of the 800,000 Americans who have died of COVID-19. The tolling will take more than an hour.

This gesture cannot replace the lives lost, but we hope it will help each American mourn the toll of this pandemic.

Wednesday, December 15, 5 pm ET

Watch Live.”
