CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. Chris Sununu says he’s not considering further restrictions or safety measures in response to the rising number of coronavirus cases in New Hampshire but will take targeted action if necessary.

The Democratic governors of Maine and Rhode Island both issued stricter mask requirements Thursday, but Sununu, a Republican, said he will continue his approach of studying the data and make more targeted adjustments by region or industry.

The state announced a one-day high of 252 new cases, but officials said an issue with a lab had delayed reporting of about 50 of them by a day.
