Today, in accordance with the President's proclamation, all flags on public buildings and grounds should be be lowered to half-staff in remembrance and as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless act of violence perpetrated on March 22, 2021, in Boulder, Colorado, and remain at half-staff until sunset, March 27, 2021. This includes any flags flying with the US Flag.

If you fly an outdoor flag that cannot be lowered, respect can be shown by tying a black ribbon or cord at the top of the staff.
