Hudson Valley Reopening Workgroup Hosts First Meeting

“Today, we held our first meeting of the Hudson Valley Reopening Workgroup. Throughout the pandemic, we have taken a collaborative approach to protect the health and safety of our region. Working together with neighboring counties to responsibly and deliberately reopen our local economy is an extension of the work that we have been engaged in for months. Today, we shared ideas, data, concerns, and the best practices we have seen respectively in our communities. We look forward to continuing to ensure Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan, Greene, Columbia, and Putnam counties come out of COVID-19 stronger and more united. In the coming days, we will work together to produce a set of regional recommendations to responsibly open, which we will share with New York State for consideration. ”
