• • • • TODAY’S SPOTLIGHT• • • • • •
- Another day without any new cases in Salem! We have the same number of total COVID-19-positive cases today as we did 19 days ago. Keep it going, Salem!
- We have another day with no COVID-19-related deaths in NH during the 24-hour period covered by this report. The last no-death day was last Monday.
- NH had no hospitalizations today, either.
- With a testing level this low (968), and with such a low positivity rate (1.34%), it’s hard to find much to spotlight tonight. (Which isn’t a bad thing!)
- Today, CNN claimed NH was one of only four states who are holding steading with the number of new cases.
- CNN is reporting that COVID-19 cases are rising in 31 states; unfortunately, this includes all three of our border states, Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts. (I’d like to know how this is computed; the numbers at worldometers.info make me believe that this is not quite as drastic as they are showing.)
- To be sure, some states are definitely in trouble. 16 states are pausing reopening plans; some are rolling back businesses that have already reopened.
- 32 states have some kind of mask order.

These are not simply numbers. We must not forget that these are all someone’s husband or wife, mother or father, sister or brother, son or daughter, friend or neighbor.
The numbers that we are seeing for NH are incredibly great. Can we keep it this way? It’s a good time to take a look at what is happening in other states. What have they done right? What are they doing wrong? We can and should learn from them, so we can stay safe, and always, be kind.
