New Hampshire has decided to remove the mask mandate. The government tweeted that the mask rule will not be renewed. Gov. Sununu said the decision was made as the state’s rate of COVID-19-related hospitalizations remains stable."This mandate going away will not limit or prevent the ability of private business or cities and towns from requiring masks, as was the case before," Sununu further explained. "New Hampshire residents know how to keep ourselves and our neighbors safe without a state mandate – just as we did before the winter surge." New Hampshire has been the first in the nation to get at least one dose of the vaccine to about 50% of adults. The state is starting to vaccine out of state people. Sununu himself got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine days before the federal officials recommended a pause in Johnson & Johnson due to concern about rare blood clots in out of six to tens of millions of people. So far, all six cases of CVST were reported in Women, one case involved a woman whose clot occurred outside of the brain. New Hampshire was the late state in New England to have a mask mandate and now they mark the first to lift the mask mandate. The state reports around 130 current hospitalizations and about 3,750 active cases.
