POUGHKEEPSIE – Dutchess County, in collaboration with the City of Poughkeepsie and MidHudson Regional Hospital, will now be providing transportation to and from the hospital for city residents with no transportation who want to have a COVID-19 test.
County Executive Marcus Molinaro announced the program Wednesday, saying he expects it to be up and running by next week.
“This is a pick-up program. You will schedule it through the City of Poughkeepsie. You will get an appointment with MidHudson Regional and we will have a van pick you up, drive you to the testing at MidHudson Regional and take you back home again; this for individuals without access to a vehicle,” he said.
The program was created with the assistance of Poughkeepsie Alderman Randall Johnson, County Legislator Barbara Jeeter Jackson, Mayor Rob Rolison, and the hospital.
