IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: All U.S. military veterans experiencing a suicidal crisis will be eligible for free emergency medical care at any VA or private facility effective on Tuesday, January 17th, 2023.

As always, the CDC and the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services are the best resources to turn to for information about COVID-19. If you are sick, stay home and call your health care provider.
