Facts are facts, and these are the facts. If we can keep the numbers heading in the same direction as they are now, it is possible that NH could have no cases by the end of the month. Wouldn’t that be awesome?! Let’s try! We can start by doing everything we can do to stay safe, and always, be kind.
