A second COVID-19 mobile testing site has opened in Ulster County, New York. And the county executive is praising Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement about expanding hospital capacity in Kingston. WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne spoke with County Executive Pat Ryan about these developments and more.

Two drive-through testing sites opened Monday in the mid-Hudson Valley. They were made possible through a local healthcare provider in partnership with Dutchess and Ulster Counties.

A mobile COVID-19 testing site in Dutchess County was slated to open around noon today, while one in Ulster County opened this morning. Meantime, Dutchess officials announced the county’s first COVID-19-related death over the weekend.
