COVID-19 Update from Health
Commissioner Dr. Anil Vaidian
As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise in our community, Dr. Anil Vaidian, the Commissioner of the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health has begun a series of video updates.
Today, Dr. Vaidian discusses how COVID-19 is primarily spreading throughout Dutchess County — not through the high-profile clusters, but rather casual gatherings among family and friends — and how we must all remain vigilant and not let “pandemic fatigue” lull us into a false sense of security. He again stresses the importance of wearing masks and socially distancing to contain the spread throughout our community.
