Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
COVID-19 vaccines are an important tool to help stop this pandemic. The NH Department of Health and Human Services has developed a plan for how vaccines will be distributed in NH. Get the latest updates and learn when you will be able to receive the vaccine here.
At this time, even with vaccination, it is important to continue practicing public health guidelines such as covering your mouth and nose with a face covering in public, staying at least six feet away from others, avoiding large crowds, and washing your hands often.
Celebrate Virtually this St. Patrick's Day
It takes more than luck to stop the spread of COVID-19. In our continuous effort to end this pandemic, we encourage everyone to modify St. Patrick's Day plans to keep our community safe. Celebrating virtually or with household members is the safest way to spend time with others. Here are some ideas:
- Enjoy a St. Patrick's Day Parade in your living room
- Get takeout or cook an Irish meal at home
- Play a St. Patrick's Day-themed game, such as trivia
- Tune into a virtual music performance
- Dress up in green and share on social media
If you are considering going out, we encourage you to practice the following:
If you feel sad or depressed, reach out to a friend or a mental health professional. Alcohol is a depressant and will not improve your mood. Let's work together to stay healthy and safe this St. Patrick's Day. Download the flyer in English and Spanish here.

The State of New Hampshire (NH) is taking steps to reopen the economy in a smart, phased approach that is supported by facts, science, and data. For NH’s most recent guidance, visit their website.

We know this journey has not been easy, but we need to take action in order to keep our community safe. Remember, we are all healthier at home.
