The state of New Hampshire has developed universal business best practices for COVID19 safety and dropped the mask mandate; however, some municipalities still have mask mandates in effect. Be sure to visit the NH Department of Health COVID-19 Resources page for the most current information and guidelines.
Vermont has announced the state’s pandemic restrictions will be lifted effective July 4th. For now, gathering limits allow one unvaccinated person per 50 sq/ft, plus any number of vaccinated people. There are no more travel restricts or quarantine requirements from the state. Masks are still required indoors. More can be found here.
April 19, 2021
New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu has announced the statewide mask mandate expired effective Friday, April 16, 2021. It is important to note that this mandate going away will not limit or prevent the ability of private businesses and local cities and towns form requiring masks in the Granite State. Though the order is expired, people are encouraged to wear masks when they are unable to socially distance. Vermont still requires use of masks in public spaces, indoors or outdoors, where they come in contact with others and where it is not possible to socially distance.
At the same time, the COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone ages 16 and over, regardless of residency, who wish to receive one in New Hampshire and Vermont.
In New Hampshire, appointments may be made by dialing 211 or on the state’s official COVID-19 vaccination scheduling website
Vermonters age 16 & up can make their vaccine appointments can also make appointments on the official VT website.
ABC staff adheres to local COVID mandates, including masks when required and encourages everyone to join us in getting vaccinated, if they are comfortable with doing so.
