New Hampshire death toll hits 21
As of Thursday, 819 people in New Hampshire had tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. Twenty-one people have died.
The Legislature's fiscal committee has approved spending $1.2 million in federal money to deliver more meals to elderly residents during the coronavirus pandemic.
But questions remain about who ultimately controls the purse strings for more than $1 billion in additional funds the state expects to receive. Meanwhile, the New Hampshire's Division for Children, Youth and Families and the Waypoint social services agency are setting up a “warm line” to connect callers with coping strategies and emotional support during the COVID-19 crisis.
