Berkshire Health Systems announced today that it is cutting back the hours on its COVID-19 hotline. The company operates the county’s primary hospital, Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, and other health care facilities throughout the area. Director of Media Relations Michael Leary tells WAMC that the move comes as BHS sees a flattening of the coronavirus curve in Western Massachusetts.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
