A statewide mask mandate will be in place in New Hampshire starting Friday, Gov. Chris Sununu announced Thursday.

Dr. Benjamin Chan, an epidemiologist for the state's Department Health and Human Services, announced 529 new Covid-19 cases and two additional coronavirus-related deaths.

That brings the statewide total to 15,749 cases and 504 deaths, according New Hampshire’s Covid-19 dashboard.
