Ulster County forms recovery task force

KINGSTON – As Governor Cuomo and the White House begin discussing a way out of the economic shutdown because of the deadly coronavirus, Ulster County Executive Patrick Ryan announced the creation of a county Recovery Task Force.

Ryan said while the government continues its current path in the fight against COVID-19, it must also look forward.

“We have to continue to work to save lives and keep folks healthy and protected, but at the same time we also need to recognize that because of the economic and social impacts of COVID, many others are struggling with food insecurity, no income, you have young kids on their own often, you have folks struggling with substance use disorders with even more pressure, mental health,” he said.

Ryan’s Recovery Task Force will bring together area public officials and members of the community.
