COVID-19 RESPONSE

COVID Press Conference

When Nassau County faced a global crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, County Executive Curran stepped up to keep the public well-informed.

When things got tough, County Executive Curran did not shy away. Instead, she remained present and transparent, holding daily press briefings to ensure residents had all the information they needed during uncertain times. She oversaw the Department of Health’s contact tracing program, which grew to become one of the largest and most efficient departments in New York state. She oversaw the distribution of PPE to Nassau’s first responders and essential workers. County Executive Curran’s unflinching leadership saved thousands of lives and kept Nassau’s local economy afloat.

COVID-19 has affected each one of us, but thanks to Laura Curran’s leadership, along with the bravery displayed by so many within Nassau’s communities, we are on our way to recovery. County Executive Laura Curran has mobilized the Nassau County Medical Reserve Corps to continually staff vaccination sites and administer all the vaccine doses allotted, getting shots in arms and using every available dose.
