CONCORD – Today, Senate President Donna Soucy (D-Manchester) released this statement following the announcement that several Republican House members had tested positive for COVID-19 following a caucus event on November 20th.
“In less than 24 hours, the full Legislature will gather in person for the first time in nine months. Extensive safety precautions have been discussed and implemented by staff and leadership to allow us to fulfill our constitutional obligations on Organization Day. Republican House leadership’s decision to withhold health and safety information is disrespectful to the work of both the UNH and legislative staff and potentially puts public safety at risk. For the safety of all members and staff, I hope those who have been potentially exposed follow CDC and state guidelines and stay home.”
