Masks are no longer required for visitors, non-infectious patients and vaccinated staff. In September 2022, the CDC stated that healthcare facilities may choose not to require universal source control when the community level is low and community transmission is not high and maintains those level designations for two weeks or longer. We have met these criteria and decided to no longer require universal mask use within our healthcare settings.
Please note that we will continue to provide masks at our facilities, for all who need or want to wear them.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Anyone in the state of New Hampshire can be tested for COVID-19, even people without symptoms.
COVID-19 home test kits are diagnostic tests, approved by the FDA with Emergency Use Authorization, that individuals can purchase over the counter and administer themselves to test for the COVID-19 antigen. Sometimes referred to as “self-test” or “at-home test”. It is important to read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions before using any COVID-19 home test kit. They are available at many drug stores, including Elliot Pharmacy.
What should you do if you test positive:
Detailed information about home testing, as well as when you should test, self-isolation guidance, and symptom monitoring are available in these Frequently Asked Questions.
The CDC recommends COVID-19 primary series vaccines for everyone ages 6 months and older, and COVID-19 boosters for everyone ages 5 years and older.
