New case count keeps declining but number of deaths keeps rising



New Hampshire to go from stay-at-home to ‘safer’ at home

“Gov. Chris Sununu is allowing New Hampshire’s stay-at-home order during the coronavirus pandemic to expire on Monday, June 15, and transition to a “safer at home” advisory with no social gathering limitations or distinctions between essential and nonessential businesses.

“We feel very confident in taking some additional steps forward,” Sununu said at a news conference Thursday.”


Stay-at-home order to expire next week; gyms, pools, bowling alleys set to reopen

“Gov. Chris Sununu is lifting the state’s stay-at-home order and allowing most businesses to reopen with restrictions by the end of the month, while still urging Granite Staters to wear masks and maintain social distancing during what he called New Hampshire’s new normal.”


All NH businesses now have date to reopen

“As Gov. Chris Sununu ended the ban on gatherings of more than 10, he also announced his stay-at-home order will expire Monday, meaning all employers can now require anyone to return to work.

Sununu said Thursday he studied setting a new limit on gathering sizes, but decided any other number would be “arbitrary” as long as people are heeding the state’s advice to wear a mask while in public and to maintain social distance.”


7 new deaths attributed to COVID-19 in NH; 34 cases announced

“Seven new deaths in New Hampshire attributed to COVID-19, the diseased caused by the novel coronavirus, were announced on Thursday afternoon.

Lori Shibinette, the commissioner of the state Department of Health and Human Services, announced that all seven deaths were connected to long-term care facilities.”


Fund to aid NH renters launched as eviction, foreclosure moratorium is lifted

“Gov. Chris Sununu on Thursday yesterday announced that the moratorium on initiating eviction and foreclosure proceedings will be lifted July 1, and at the same time he allocated $35 million in federal CARES Act funding to help households suffering from foregone revenue or increased expenses to pay past-due rent.”
