COVID-19 Essential Businesses VT & NH

Essential Business

The governors of both Vermont and New Hampshire have now issued orders that all in-person business operations cease, except for those business operations deemed critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security (so-called “Essential Businesses”). Each state interprets “Essential Businesses” slightly differently. Details can be found below.
