NY Counties Lead

Many people don't realize that the majority of the people who are on the front lines of the COVID 19 response are county employees.

They are local health departments, first responders, emergency management personnel, county leaders, county attorneys, social service workers, mental health workers, highway superintendents, everything that keeps our county running smoothly.

These are the people who are doing the hard work and putting their lives on the line for us. Every New Yorker – all 20 million of us – are connected to them.

The NY Counties Lead campaign is meant to shine a spotlight on them and the countless other ways that counties are leading the way through the COVID-19 pandemic.
