CONCORD, N.H. (WCAX) New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu Friday announced that dentists in the state will be able to reopen if they want to.
Despite 1,500 current cases of the COVID-19, Sununu says health officials believe the dental offices can reopen safely with additional precautions like face masks.
Sununu also announced that the private company ClearChoiceMD will soon be providing antibody testing at their eight urgent care centers around the state as well as a ninth pop-up site. He said the testing will be available to anyone regardless of their ability to pay.
New Hampshire’s public four-year colleges and universities and its community colleges plan to welcome students back to their campuses across the state this fall.
The college reopening announcement Friday covers the seven community colleges and the four University System of New Hampshire schools.
Meanwhile, the head of the task force on reopening New Hampshire's economy says issuing specific guidance for every industry would be impractical and amount to inappropriate micromanagement. D.J. Bettencourt says the group is putting together a list of businesses it believes can reopen under the universal guidance that already has been issued.
