CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Single-use bags are no longer required at stores, but masks will be mandatory at many gyms as New Hampshire responds to the coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Chris Sununu has rescinded an order banning the use of reusable shopping bags, though he’s reminding residents to keep them clean.

Meanwhile, Planet Fitness says it will require all members and guests to wear face masks starting Aug. 1.

The New Hampshire-based company has about 1,400 locations in 46 states, Canada and Australia. It joins a growing list of companies and retailers enacting such mandates.
