NH Mask Mandate still in place
for 21 more days

  • Gov. Chris Sununu announced Thursday that the state’s mask mandate will continue to be in effect for at least 21 more days.
  • The governor said the mandate needs to stay in place because many vulnerable folks, including people 65 and older and other medically vulnerable individuals, aren’t fully vaccinated and there also has been a recent uptick of cases in the state.
  • The mask mandate first took effect Nov. 20, 2020. It requires anyone over the age of 5 to wear a mask in indoor or outdoor public spaces where they do not consistently maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet from people outside their own households.

Do I need to wear a mask and avoid close contact with others if I am considered “fully vaccinated”?

  • A person is considered “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 when they are 14 days or more after receipt of their second dose of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna), or 14 days or more after receipt of the single-dose Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.
  • Generally, yes, you should still wear a mask and follow COVID safety protocols. For more specific information, please click on the following link from the CDC regarding Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People, including a Science Brief that discusses the rationale and evidence for the recommendations.
  • To protect yourself and others, everyone should continue to follow these recommendations:
    • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth
    • Stay at least 6 feet away from others
    • Avoid crowds
    • Avoid poorly ventilated spaces
    • Wash your hands often
