N.H. Governor Announces ‘Stay at Home 2.0’


New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu announced a new, modified Stay-at-Home Order. “Stay at Home 2.0” is in effect until May 31st.

The state is taking steps to reopen the economy “in a smart, phased approach that is supported by facts, science and data,” the governor said in a statement.

Each of the decisions and guidance documents below have been reviewed by State Epidemiologist Dr. Benjamin Chan and his team at the New Hampshire’s Public Health Department, the governor said.

“The people of New Hampshire have taken this epidemic incredibly seriously,” said Sununu. “We have all played a small part in flattening the curve and slowing the spread of COVID19. We all know you are healthier at home, and that continues to be true, but we are also taking steps to reopen our economy in a smart, step-by-step approach that is supported by facts, science and data.”

Universal Guidance is being issued for any business that is currently open, or will soon be opening, under these next steps. This universal guidance will serve as the bare minimum standards which businesses must meet to maintain or begin operations.
