Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro and Dr. Anil Vaidian, Commissioner of the Department of Behavioral & Community Health are advising face coverings should be worn by everyone outside of their homes to help protect against Coronavirus, including essential workers in the retail, service and other industries. This directive comes after the Center for Disease Control released official guidance recommending people wear cloth face coverings in settings in settings where ample social distancing may not be adequate to stop the spread of COVID-19. WEAR A MASK, STAY HOME, SHOP INFREQUENTLY AND PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING. We are distributing cloth masks outside of Town Hall in a plastic bin. Please take only what you need. We can flatten the curve.
