State Of NH Releases Inclement Weather Closure Plan For Outdoor Fixed COVID-19 Testing Sites

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has released the State of New Hampshire’s inclement weather closure plan for the State’s outdoor fixed COVID-19 testing sites. The plan only applies to the seven outdoor testing sites currently overseen by the State.

Effective immediately, operation of the State-run outdoor testing sites will align with local school systems Monday through Friday. If the municipal school district where a testing site is located cancels school due to inclement weather, the testing site in that municipality will also be closed that day. When schools in the municipality are open, the State-run outdoor testing sites will also be operational. Decisions made by school systems in proximity to the municipality where the outdoor testing site is located will have no bearing on the operation of the testing site.

On weekends, the Department of Safety and DHHS will continue to partner with the National Weather Service and the outdoor testing site vendor to make the safest decisions during severe weather conditions, such as a Nor’easter or sub-zero wind-chill temperatures.

The State’s Inclement Weather Closure Plan is posted on the State’s COVID-19 website. The closing of an outdoor testing site location will be posted on the DHHS Twitter and Facebook accounts.
