Niagara County Legislature Chairwoman Becky Wydysh said, “Our prayers are with the family and the loved ones of this individual, as they have been all along with those that are affected by COVID-19. These are not announcements, certainly, that we like to have to make.

“This is a difficult time for those families as they struggle through, especially with visitation and funeral services being so drastically different from what they normally would be. So, again, we continue to think of those families and keep you in our thoughts and prayers.”
