    New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu on Thursday instituted a statewide mask mandate, saying it is necessary to allow Granite State businesses to stay open and prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients.

    The mandate takes effect Friday.

    "By wearing your mask, you help us keep our friends, family, neighbors and critical workforce members and those they care for safe, as well as our economy open," the governor said.

    The new emergency order comes as the state has recorded its highest totals of current COVID-19 cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

    "This is obviously a decision that did not come lightly," Sununu said.

    The mandate will apply to all indoor public spaces and outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained.
