Several local overdoses and one death reported
Columbia-Greene Media reports that there have been several overdoses and one fatality this week in Greene and Columbia counties, Greener Pathways Program Director Carl Quinn said. A Hudson-Greenport area man died, and there were overdoses in Greenport, Hudson, Cairo, and a possible overdose in Catskil, according to Quinn. That could indicate a local drug supply contaminated with fentanyl. Greener Pathways distributed Narcan and fentanyl test strips on Aug. 23 at Greenport Town Park and Public Square in Hudson. Anyone witnessing an overdose, should call 911 immediately.
