NH Governor Declares Public Schools Closed in Light of New Coronavirus Cases
On Sunday, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu declared that "all public schools will be closed in New Hampshire beginning Monday," according to WMUR.
This announcement was made after it was confirmed that that there were "six new cases of COVID-19 in New Hampshire, bringing the state's total to 13," the news station reported.
This is just a few days after the governor declared a state of emergency in New Hampshire on Friday.
He said the "emergency declaration will ensure resources are ready so the state is able to respond and deploy them at a moment's notice," according to WMUR.
Here are just a few of the things the CDC is recommending to protect yourself from the coronavirus at this time:
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your face.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces used often every day.
