This takes leading by example to a whole new level.

The Hudson Valley has come together through these trying times and is doing their best to take care of their neighbor. Whether it be donating their time to deliver meals to those who can't get out or sewing masks, we're doing the best we can to get through this together.

We know the leaders in our community are doing what they can as well.

According to Albany County Executive Daniel McCoy, Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan and Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro donated "gowns and Tyvek suits to Albany County."

In the post on Facebook McCoy said "We are all New Yorkers, and both of you are demonstrating true leadership during this crisis. This PPE is critical for our testing sites, first responders and healthcare workers. Thank you!"

Executive Pat Ryan replied on Facebook and said:

This virus does not respect our arbitrary county borders, and neither can our response. To protect the health and safety of our area, we must aid our neighbors whenever possible. The response to COVID-19 illustrates that we are all in this fight together. We are happy to help our friends and neighbors in Albany County
