During this period of uncertainty and challenge, we are seeing more people come together to protect and support the community that we all live and work in, Upstate New York. Residents, restaurant owners, and businesses in the community are working as one to help those most vulnerable.
Businesses in our area are using their resources to help fight COVID-19. Tessy Plastics is helping produce plastic parts for the 5-Minute COVID-19 test. Hillrom is creating blood pressure cuffs and patient vital sign monitors at its Welch Allyn Plant. 1911, part of Beak & Skiff Apple Orchards, is using its equipment in making hand sanitizer to donate to health and emergency agencies. Syracuse Stage is making 500 fabric face masks a week. And these are just a few. There are so many more businesses stepping up and making a difference.
All of us at VIP say thank you to the first responders, nurses, and doctors who are on the front lines fighting COVID-19.
