With NH’s numbers so low, it’s easy to feel safe. However, numbers are skyrocketing in other states. Florida had more new cases today than we have had since the beginning. Hopefully, we can keep NH’s counts low, but it will be work and will require cooperation. I have faith that we can do it. Stay safe, and always, be kind.
