3 New Hampshire lawmakers quarantined over virus concerns

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) Concerns over the new coronavirus are playing out in the New Hampshire House.

Three of the 400 House members missed the start of Wednesday's session because they had been told to self-quarantine. But two were from a town where officials now say there was no risk, and one of them joined the session later in the day. Five people have tested positive for the new virus in New Hampshire.

For most people, it causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, and the vast majority of people recover.
