Mask mandate expires in NH

WOODSVILLE—On Friday evening, Chelsea Anderson of Warren was one of several people waiting in line at Sunny Garden restaurant for takeout. She and the others in line were all wearing masks and observed the recommended 6 feet of social distancing.
It was the same day that New Hampshire statewide mask mandate, in place since Nov. 20, expired. On April 15, Gov. Chris Sununu said a reduction in the state’s seven-day average of daily deaths to the lowest level since before the mask mandate warranted the decision. He added that hospitalizations were at manageable levels and over 70% of those 65 and older have been vaccinated.
