Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell has ordered all U.S. flags on county properties to be flown at half-staff in remembrance of all those who have been lost to COVID-19. As of Tuesday morning, 15 Putnam County residents died of COVID-19. The flags will be lowered from today until further notice. Odell says Putnam is a small County and these are no just numbers, but friends and loved ones.
Social distancing has affected everyone, especially children celebrating birthdays. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department will be doing Drive-Bys for a child’s birthday in an effort to make that day memorable for them. Parents can contact firstname.lastname@example.org with information to make the arrangements.
Brewster firefighters are asking parents to send them a private Facebook message so they can do a drive by with lights and sirens. They will be doing this Saturday April 11th, after 3 pm.
