Manchester (115), Nashua (100), and Dover (63) had the most active cases of COVID-19 Friday.

On Friday only Carroll, Cheshire and Sullivan Counties were in the yellow “moderate” level for community transmission of the virus. The rest of the counties Rockingham, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Strafford, Belknap, Coos and Grafton were listed in the red for having “substantial” community transmission.

For the first time Wednesday and again Thursday and Friday, there were no counties listed in the green level for “minimal.”

The overall level of community transmission is defined using three metrics: new cases per 100,000 over 14 days; new hospitalizations per 100,000 over 14 days; and 7-day PCR test positivity rate.

Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates. Of those with complete information, there are twenty-five individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 47% being female and 53% being male. The new cases reside in Rockingham (56), Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (26), Strafford (24), Merrimack (21), Grafton (12), Carroll (7), Cheshire (7), Sullivan (6), Belknap (5), and Coos (3) counties, and in the cities of Nashua (18) and Manchester (12). The county of residence is being determined for twelve new cases.

Two new hospitalized cases were reported. There are currently 48 individuals hospitalized with COVID-19. This census may include out of state residents hospitalized in NH and/or individuals readmitted to the hospital, therefore increases in the daily hospital census may not always equal the number of new hospitalizations reported in a given day.

One of the new cases had no identified risk factors. Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Of those with complete risk information, most of the cases are either associated with an outbreak setting or have had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.

In New Hampshire since the start of the pandemic, there have been a total of 12,012 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed with 790 (7%) of those having been hospitalized.
