COVID Updates: Health Department alerts Rockland County residents to potential COVID-19 exposures

NEW YORK (WABC) — Doctor Deborah Birx is responding to reports she felt her role had been quote “diminished” on the white house coronavirus task force.

Birx is the coordinator of the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force.
