COVID-19 | NH DHHS COVID-19 Update – May 5, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued the following update on the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

On Tuesday, May 5, 2020, DHHS announced 50 new positive test results for COVID-19. There have now been 2,636 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in New Hampshire. The number of tests reported today is lower due to specimens collected during Saturday or Sunday, when healthcare providers typically see fewer patients. Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are four individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 56% being female and 44% being male. The new cases reside in Rockingham (11), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (6), Merrimack (5), Strafford (5) Carroll (1), Cheshire (1), Grafton (1) and counties, and in the cities of Manchester (16) and Nashua (3). The county of residence is being determined for one new case.  

Nine new hospitalized cases were identified for a total of 295 (11%) of 2,636 cases. Three of the new cases have no identified risk factors. Community-based transmission continues to occur throughout the State and has been identified in all counties. Most of the remaining cases have either had travel to domestic or international locations or have had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.

DHHS has also announced 6 additional deaths related to COVID-19. We offer our sympathies to the family and friends.

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu announced he is implementing a new, modified Stay-at-Home Order. Stay at Home 2.0 is in effect until May 31st. The state is taking steps to reopen the economy in a smart, phased approach that is supported by facts, science and data.

Each of the decisions and guidance documents below have been reviewed by State Epidemiologist Dr. Benjamin Chan and his team at the New Hampshire’s Public Health Department.

“The people of New Hampshire have taken this epidemic incredibly seriously,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “We have all played a small part in flattening the curve and slowing the spread of COVID19. We all know you are healthier at home, and that continues to be true, but we are also taking steps to reopen our economy in a smart, step-by-step approach that is supported by facts, science and data.”

Universal Guidance is being issued for any business that is currently open, or will soon be opening, under these next steps. This universal guidance will serve as the bare minimum standards which businesses must meet to maintain or begin operations. For specific industries with specific operational procedures, industry specific guidance for certain sectors can be found below.

All applicable industries are able to start opening up in incremental phases as determined by Public Health.

Industries that can continue to operate with new, modified guidance:
