It’s been 125 days since NH had its first confirmed case of COVID-19. We’ve learned so much about this disease; we have much more to learn. We are learning more about wearing masks. Watch this short video to see why they are so important. The full mask study is here.
It’s an American tradition, as well as the teachings of most, if not all religions, to take care of one another. You can do that by wearing a mask. Stay safe, and always, be kind.
