Hello, Salem!

A few days ago, I shared that NH DHHS decided to stop issuing updates on the weekend. I asked for your opinion: Should I stop the weekend updates or use that time to take a deeper look at where we are and where we have been. The few people who responded said to take a break. So, on Saturday I will take the first break since Christmas, and the second day off since I started these updates on April 4, 2020!

Have a great weekend, but remember that the Delta variant, and the risk of future variants, as I reported yesterday, are all good reason to stay safe, and always, be kind.
