Morning, Five Towns! Let's get you started this Tuesday with everything you need to know going on in town today.

First, today's weather:

Mostly sunny and windy. High: 35 Low: 27.

Here are the top three stories in Five Towns today:

  1. The three CityMD locations that closed due to COVID-19 staffing shortages on Long Island have reopened.The locations in Bay Shore, Merrick, and Patchogue returned to normal operations on Monday. (News 12)

Doing a "Dry January" or just looking for a flavorful alternative to regular cocktails? Here's a suggestion: try a non-alcoholic drink from our partners at Betera. Created by an award-winning chef from natural botanicals, Betera's drinks come in 3 flavors - Ginger-Orange, Elderflower-Lime and Rhubarb-Hibiscus. We tried Ginger-Orange, and it was excellent - lightly effervescent, floral with a hint of bitterness and the sippability of a cocktail.

Betera is offering readers of the Daily a 15% discount on their first order: use PATCH15 at checkout. Highly recommended - you can try Betera here.
