NH DHHS COVID-19 Update - October 28, 2020
Wednesday, October 28, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued the following update on the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

On Wednesday, October 28, 2020, DHHS announced 113 new positive test results for COVID-19, for a daily PCR test positivity rate of 1.1%. Today’s results include 59 people who tested positive by PCR test and 54 who tested positive by antigen test. There are now 1,034 current COVID-19 cases diagnosed in New Hampshire.

Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are ten individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 57% being female and 43% being male. The new cases reside in Rockingham (27), Merrimack (19), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (14), Strafford (8), Coos (6), Grafton (5), Belknap (4), Carroll (3), and Sullivan (2) counties, and in the cities of Manchester (18) and Nashua (4). The county of residence is being determined for three new cases.

Four new hospitalized cases were reported. There are currently 29 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. This census may include out of state residents hospitalized in NH and/or individuals readmitted to the hospital, therefore increases in the daily hospital census may not always equal the number of new hospitalizations reported in a given day. None of the new cases had unidentified risk factors. Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases have had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.

DHHS has also announced three additional deaths related to COVID-19. We offer our sympathies to the family and friends.

•           2 male residents of Merrimack County, 60 years of age and older

•           1 female resident of Hillsborough County, 60 years of age and older

In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 10,641 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 775 (7%) of those having been hospitalized.

COVID-19 can present with a wide range of symptoms including fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell. Any person who develops new symptoms should stay home, limit their contact with others, immediately contact their healthcare provider and get tested for COVID-19. Guidance for self-quarantine is available at: https://www.nh.gov/covid19/residents/documents/self-quarantine-covid.pdf 

Whether or not you are experiencing symptoms, multiple testing options throughout the State are available to potentially exposed individuals. For persons without health insurance or a primary care provider, testing is available and can be scheduled by calling (603) 271-5980 or through completing the online form at https://business.nh.gov/DOS_COVID19Testing. Other options can be found here: https://www.nh.gov/covid19/resources-guidance/testing-guidance.htm.

On Wednesday, October 21, 2020, DHHS announced 92 new positive test results for COVID-19, for a daily PCR test positivity rate of 1.2. Today’s results include 52 people who tested positive by PCR test and 40 who tested positive by antigen test. There are now 798 current COVID-19 cases diagnosed in New Hampshire.

Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are eight individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 51% being female and 49% being male. The new cases reside in Rockingham (22), Merrimack (19), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (15), Belknap (7), Strafford (7), Grafton (2), Sullivan (2), and Carroll (1) counties, and in the cities of Manchester (10) and Nashua (2).

No new hospitalized cases were reported. There are currently ­14 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. One of the new cases had no identified risk factors. Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases have either had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis, are associated with an outbreak setting, or have recently traveled.

DHHS has also announced one additional death related to COVID-19. We offer our sympathies to the family and friends.

In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 9,917 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 763 (8%) of those having been hospitalized.

NH DHHS Announces Potential Community Exposures Connected to Positive Cases of COVID-19 at Restaurant in Hudson
Friday, October 16, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has identified an outbreak of COVID-19 that may have exposed patrons at Fat Katz Food and Drink, located at 76 Derry Road, Hudson, NH. The potential exposures occurred between Friday, October 2, 2020 and Friday, October 9, 2020.

DHHS has identified at least 17 cases of COVID-19 associated with this outbreak, which includes one individual who went to the establishment while aware of their COVID-19 diagnosis when they were supposed to be on isolation, and a second person who went to the establishment when they were knowingly supposed to be on quarantine, both of whom potentially exposed others.

The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office is currently investigating multiple violations of New Hampshire Food Service guidance by the establishment.

Any individuals who visited Fat Katz Food and Drink between October 2-9, 2020 may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should seek testing. DHHS has conducted a contact investigation and notified known close contacts directly. However, DHHS is making this public notification because there may be additional individuals at the location during those days who were potentially exposed to the coronavirus.

COVID-19 can present with a wide range of symptoms including fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, fatigue, headache, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell. Any person who develops new symptoms should stay home, limit their contact with others, immediately contact their healthcare provider and get tested for COVID-19. Guidance for self-quarantine is available at: https://www.nh.gov/covid19/residents/documents/self-quarantine-covid.pdf 

Whether or not you are experiencing symptoms, multiple testing options throughout the State are available to potentially exposed individuals. For persons without health insurance or a primary care provider, testing is available and can be scheduled by calling (603) 271-5980 or through completing the online form at https://business.nh.gov/DOS_COVID19Testing. Other options can be found here: https://www.nh.gov/covid19/resources-guidance/testing-guidance.htm.

COVID-19 continues to circulate in our communities, so all people need to protect themselves and help prevent further community spread, by:

NH DHHS COVID-19 Update - October 14, 2020
Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued the following update on the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

On Wednesday, October 14, 2020, DHHS announced 71 new positive test results for COVID-19, for a daily PCR test positivity rate of 0.9%. Today’s results include 40 people who tested positive by PCR test and 31 who tested positive by antigen test. There are now 823 current COVID-19 cases diagnosed in New Hampshire.

Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are fourteen individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 48% being female and 52% being male. The new cases reside in Rockingham (19), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (11), Merrimack (9), Cheshire (4), Strafford (3), Grafton (2), and Belknap (1) counties, and in the cities of Nashua (11) and Manchester (9). The county of residence is being determined for two new cases.

Two new hospitalized cases were reported. There are currently ­19 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. Three of the new cases had no identified risk factors. Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases have either had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis or have recently traveled.

DHHS has also announced two additional deaths related to COVID-19. We offer our sympathies to the family and friends.

In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 9,349 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 760 (8%) of those having been hospitalized.

NH DHHS COVID-19 Update - October 9, 2020
Friday, October 9, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued the following update on the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

On Friday, October 9, 2020, DHHS announced 97 new positive test results for COVID-19, for a daily PCR test positivity rate of 0.9%. Today’s results include 77 people who tested positive by PCR test and 20 who tested positive by antigen test. There are now 585 current COVID-19 cases diagnosed in New Hampshire.

Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are 27 individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 45% being female and 55% being male. The new cases reside in Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (29), Rockingham (17), Merrimack (14), Belknap (4), Cheshire (4), Grafton (3), Carroll (2), and Sullivan (1) counties, and in the cities of Nashua (11) and Manchester (7). The county of residence is being determined for five new cases.

One new hospitalized case was identified. There are currently ¬¬13 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. Nine of the new cases had no identified risk factors. Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases have either had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis or are associated with an outbreak setting.

DHHS has announced one additional death related to COVID-19. We offer our sympathies to the family and friends.

In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 8,970 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 748 (8%) of those having been hospitalized.

Wednesday, October 7, 2020

Concord, NH – The NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is investigating a potential outbreak of COVID-19 associated with individuals who have attended events hosted by the Gate City Church, located at 43 Main Street, Nashua, NH 03064. This includes a multi-day prayer session held from September 19th – 28th. To date, seven persons with COVID-19 have been identified with connections to the church community. DHHS and the Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services are investigating these illnesses further and the church has moved to hosting virtual services only.

Any individuals who attended events associated with Gate City Church since September 19th may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should observe for illness and seek testing. For information on testing options available throughout the State, please visit https://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/cdcs/covid19/documents/covid-testing-sites.pdf.

NH DHHS COVID-19 Update - October 2, 2020
Friday, October 2, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued the following update on the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

On Friday, October 2, 2020, DHHS announced 99 new positive test results for COVID-19, with a positivity rate of 0.9%. There are now 456 current COVID-19 cases diagnosed in New Hampshire. Today’s results include 80 people that tested positive by PCR test and 19 that tested positive by antigen test. The number of new cases reported today is increased due to the inclusion of antigen test results, as well as delayed reporting of 22 PCR test results from one laboratory. The 22 cases related to the delayed reporting are not included in our active case counts or in our positivity rate.

Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are 16 individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 61% being female and 39% being male. The new cases reside in Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (23), Rockingham (9), Strafford (7), Merrimack (3), Belknap (2), Carroll (2), and Grafton (2) counties, and in the cities of Manchester (35) and Nashua (16).

No new hospitalized cases were identified today. There are currently 20 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. Twelve of the new cases had no identified risk factors. Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases have either had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis, have recently traveled, or were associated with an outbreak setting.

In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 8,534 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 743 (9%) of those having been hospitalized. The total number of cases now includes 139 people who, dating back to July, had a positive antigen test, including 5 hospitalizations and one death in the first week of September, a female resident of Rockingham County 60 years of age or older. DHHS has been tracking and investigating all reported positive antigen tests since this testing method first became available in New Hampshire but these results were not included in daily case counts because they did not meet national confirmed case criteria. Although national criteria have not changed, DHHS is now including positive antigen tests due to the increasing use of these tests Statewide.

Thursday, October 1, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has issued the following update on the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

On Thursday, October 1, 2020, DHHS announced 52 new positive test results for COVID-19. There have now been 8,317 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in New Hampshire. Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are two individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 52% being female and 48% being male. The new cases reside in Rockingham (13), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (11), Strafford (5), Merrimack (4), Belknap (1), Carroll (1), and Grafton (1) counties, and in the cities of Manchester (8) and Nashua (6).

Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases have either had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis or have recently traveled.

NH DHHS Announces Potential Community Exposures Connected To Positive Cases of COVID-19 at Sturgis, SD, Motorcycle Rally
Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Concord, NH – The NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is notifying residents about potential exposures related to the Sturgis, SD, Motorcycle Rally held August 7-16. There have been more than 100 confirmed cases associated with the Sturgis event, including six New Hampshire residents.

DHHS recommends that all NH residents who traveled to Sturgis for the motorcycle rally get tested for COVID-19. They should also quarantine and monitor for symptoms for 14 days upon their return to NH, even if they test negative. Per the State’s travel guidance, all individuals traveling anywhere outside New England are reminded to quarantine for 14 days.

Guidance for self-quarantine is available at: https://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/cdcs/covid19/documents/self-quarantine-covid.pdf.

The South Dakota Department of Health has issued public notifications regarding potential exposures at multiple locations in Sturgis from August 11-17.

DHHS Identifies Second Jamestown Canyon Virus Case of the 2020 Arboviral Season in New Hampshire
Friday, August 7, 2020

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) is announcing that an adult from Bow, NH, tested positive for Jamestown Canyon virus (JCV). The person was not hospitalized and is doing well, but experienced fever and mild neurological symptoms. This is the second detection of JCV in the State this year. JCV is transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito. There are no vaccines to prevent JCV and treatment consists of supportive care.

The arboviral risk level for Bow will be increased to high. The arboviral risk level indicates the risk of transmission of these infections to people from mosquitoes. The surrounding towns of Goffstown, Dunbarton, Hopkinton, and Allenstown will increase to moderate. The risk level for the surrounding towns of Hooksett, Pembroke and Concord will remain moderate.

“Jamestown Canyon Virus is one of three different infections that can be transmitted through the bite of a mosquito in New Hampshire,” said Dr. Benjamin Chan, NH State Epidemiologist. “This is the second infection identified in NH this year, and the risk for mosquito-transmitted infections will only increase through the summer and fall until there is a mosquito-killing hard frost. New Hampshire residents and visitors need to continue to take steps to protect themselves from mosquito bites.”

Jamestown Canyon virus is a mosquito-borne pathogen that circulates widely in North America primarily between deer and mosquitoes but can also infect humans. Reports in humans have been increasing over the last several years as recognition and testing for this virus has increased. This is New Hampshire’s eleventh case of JCV since the first report of the disease in the State in 2013. Many illnesses caused by JCV are mild, but moderate-to-severe central nervous system involvement requiring hospitalization have been reported, including fatal infections.

In addition to JCV, risk for infection in NH by Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus (EEEV) and West Nile Virus (WNV) will continue to increase through the summer and fall until mosquitoes are no longer biting. Residents of and visitors to New Hampshire should continue to protect themselves and their family members. Prevention guidelines are included below.

People can be infected and not develop any symptoms, or only develop very mild symptoms for all of the mosquito-borne diseases present in New Hampshire. Early symptoms can include fever, muscle aches, headaches, and fatigue. More serious central nervous system disease, including meningitis or encephalitis can occur with these diseases. If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms, including fever and headache, contact your local medical provider.

Anyone with questions about vector-borne illnesses can call the DPHS Bureau of Infectious Disease Control at (603) 271-4496 from 8 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. More information can also be found online at www.dhhs.nh.gov and www.cdc.gov.
