Governor Chris Sununu Issues Two Executive Orders, Extends Mask Mandate

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued two emergency orders as part of the state's efforts to combat COVID-19:
Emergency Order #81: Extension of Emergency Order #74, extending the statewide mask mandate through March 26, 2021
Emergency Order #82: An order regarding travel guidance and extending Emergency Order #52
Following the extension of New Hampshire's statewide mask mandate through March 26, 2021, Governor Sununu issued the following statement:

"With high case rates, hospitalizations, and fatalities, our health care system is still under an immense amount of pressure," said Governor Chris Sununu. "To loosen or eliminate the tools we have utilized with success so far is the wrong approach to fighting this pandemic. The light at the end of the tunnel is within sight - but we must remain vigilant and we cannot let up now."
