“We’d like to thank Riverside and BBCHS for having their COVID-19 testing done today. Hopefully, the community went out and got tested.” Mayor Schore said tonight. “I know a lot of the Village people were surprised to find out they had it with no symptoms. Please get out and get tested if you can.”
