I know that many people want to open the states back open for business - at least here in NH. According to a report from WMUR, there was a rally held on Saturday at the State House in Concord. Hundreds of people showed up at the event. Governor Sununu, according to the report, said:
New Hampshire’s success at social distancing and mitigation efforts has led some to believe that COVID-19 is no longer a serious threat, but we are unfortunately in the middle of a worldwide pandemic and only six weeks in. I would like to urge Granite Staters to be patient. I empathize with the sentiment behind today’s rally, but we must be responsible and patient in our actions.
