On April 14th, Greene County Legislature Chair Pat Linger personally received 25 COVID-19 test kits as well as the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) needed to administer the tests from Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan.
Ulster County has offered assistance to aid in neighboring counties’ response to COVID-19 and has maintained close partnership with all neighboring counties in coordinating their response.
“This virus does not respect our arbitrary county borders, and neither can our response. To protect the health and safety of our area, we must aid our neighbors whenever possible,” Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan said. “The response to COVID-19 illustrates that we are all in this fight together. As County Executive, I will continue to collaborate with others to find new, creative solutions to combat this virus.”
“I would like to thank Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan for helping out Greene County and protecting the residents of our region,” Chair of the Greene County Legislature Patrick Linger said. “The test kits donated today will be used to protect our most vulnerable populations in our nursing homes.”
