  • For the second day in a row, a Salem resident has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • NH DHHS has announced 45 new cases. However, when we subtract the number of total infections from yesterday, the difference is 40. They have explained this in the past that, in the contact tracing process, they find that some people previously reported, were not NH residents.

  • 45 more people received the good news that they have recovered.
  • Active cases have gone down in most communities. There are only 9 communities left with more than 10 active cases: one with more than 100 cases, and two with more than 50, two with 20-49 cases and four with 10-19 cases. Goffstown (109), Manchester (96), Nashua (54, Derry (25), Salem (21), Bedford (16), Londonderry (12), Concord (11) and Merrimack (11).

Not convinced that masks are the right way to go? I’ve collected some scientific research that proves masks are doing what we want them to do. If we all wear masks, we can avoid another shutdown. Your choice. You can read excerpts or the full article collection here. I’ve also put this information in the “Useful Links” section, just above this paragraph.

I updated the graph of Salem’s infections, which can be found right under the calendar.

Watch out! It looks like we have a stretch of really hot weather coming in. Check on your neighbors, especially the elderly. Stay hydrated, stay safe, and always, be kind.
