The State of New Hampshire has estabilished a COVID-19 webpage where you can find the latest updates on cases, and find information for COVID-19 testing, vaccines and steps you should take if you are exposed to the virus.
Any person aged 12 and older, regardless of residency, is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in New Hampshire. Visit www.vaccines.nh.gov to schedule an appointment. You can also call 2-1-1 if you have questions about COVID-19 and want to talk to someone.
OSHA is developing a rule that will require all businesses with 100 or more employees to mandate COVID-19 vaccines, or require unvaccinated employees to be tested for COVID-19 weekly. Bookmark this page to read updates on this subject.
Do you have less than 100 employees, and you're not sure how to address the COVID-19 vaccine in the workplace? Watch our COVID-19 Vaccination Information for Employers webinar presented by Sheehan Phinney Bass & Green PA attorneys.
