CONCORD, NH – On Friday, May 29, 2020, DHHS announced 107 new positive test results for COVID-19. There have now been 4,492 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in New Hampshire. Several cases are still under investigation. Additional information from ongoing investigations will be incorporated into future COVID-19 updates.

Of those with complete information, there are three individuals under the age of 18 and the rest are adults with 74 percent being female and 26 percent being male. The new cases reside in Hillsborough County other than Manchester and Nashua (16), Rockingham (7), Strafford (4), Sullivan (2), Cheshire (2), Merrimack (2), and Belknap (1) counties, and in the cities of Nashua (40) and Manchester (32).

Community-based transmission continues to occur in the State and has been identified in all counties. Most of the remaining cases have either had travel to domestic or international locations or have had close contact with a person with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.

DHHS has announced six additional deaths related to COVID-19. We offer our sympathies to the family and friends.
