Farmington COVID-19 Update

I wanted to address any rumors that are circling the community via social media that there are still NO confirmed cases of COVID-19 here in Farmington. In addition, there are still NO confirmed cases here in Strafford County The latest update from the state is that all thirty-nine confirmed cases and their locations are being closely monitored. I have been in contact daily with state officials at the New Hampshire Joint Information Center (JIC) who are staffing the Incident Planning & Operation Center in Concord, NH. State and local officials will continue to monitor this situation and keep the public informed of any new information once it becomes available. For more information about COVID-19, and what you can do to prevent exposure and transmission please consult the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) websites.
