Although Gov. Chris Sununu ended the state’s mask mandate on Friday, businesses around the state are still asking customers to wear face coverings inside.
There is no longer a state requirement to keep a mask on in public places where it is difficult to keep six feet from others, but other state guidelines still apply to businesses, at least for a few more weeks. Since Sununu announced Thursday the mask mandate would end, businesses have put out gentle reminders that their rules have not changed.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends wearing masks when not actively eating or drinking at a restaurant, and Catholic Medical Center in Manchester encouraged people to keep wearing masks in public for the health of all, though it is no longer a state mandate.
