Tonight, Gossips learned the reason Tuesday night's Planning Board meeting was canceled: fear that gathering a large number of people in one room could facilitate the spread of the coronavirus.
Also tonight, someone at the Common Council meeting suggested the City needed to hold a meeting--in a large venue such as the auditorium at Montgomery C. Smith--to gather the citizens of Hudson together and educate them about the coronavirus. Council president Tom DePietro responded, reasonably, "Why? To spread the virus?" Alderman Tiffany Garriga (Second Ward) thought it was a good idea and opined that such meetings should be held in every ward. At that point, I left, to go home and wash my hands.
