New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu decided not to renew his state’s mask mandate after it expired on Friday.
“As fatalities continue to decline, as hospitalizations remain manageable, and as vaccinations continue to increase, the state’s mask mandate will not be renewed tomorrow,” said Sununu. “This mandate going away will not limit or prevent the ability of private businesses or cities and towns from requiring masks, as was the case beforehand.”
“New Hampshire residents know how to keep ourselves and our neighbors safe without a state mandate – just as we did before the winter surge,” continued Sununu.
New Hampshire has become the first state to give 50% of all eligible adults one dose of the vaccine, according to Fox News.
Fox News recently stated that 56.2% of all eligible adults have received one dose while fully vaccinated individuals consist of 23% of the eligible population.
