Information and Resources on COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Below is a list of public resources regarding symptoms, prevention, response, and further information about the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus). I will continue to be in contact with leaders across the state including hospital and government officials and I will closely monitor cases in New Hampshire. It’s important that we are prepared, but I want to reassure Granite Staters that with basic precautions, most people are not likely to be affected by coronavirus.

CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
