NHDOT Announces Traffic Reconfiguration of Ashworth Avenue and Route 1A (Ocean Blvd) in Hampton, NH
Changes Are at the Request of the Town of Hampton to Support Social Distancing Measures

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces that they will be changing the prevailing northbound Route 1A traffic patterns in Hampton beginning Thursday May 27th, 2020 through Labor Day, September 7th 2020. This work is expected to be completed late Thursday afternoon and the new configuration will result in northbound Route 1A (Ocean Blvd) traffic being detoured to Ashworth Ave using O Street and then returned to Ocean Blvd near Nudd Avenue. These changes are being implemented in accordance with Governor Sununu’s Stay at Home 2.0 Emergency Order and the Seacoast Beach reopening on June 1, 2020. As such this is a collaborative effort between The Town of Hampton, NH, New Hampshire Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, Division of State Parks, and New Hampshire Department of Transportation. The closure of Ocean Boulevard to vehicles will provide for a wider walking mall to allow individuals to properly socially distance.

Beginning on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 6:00 am the southbound right lane of Ashworth Avenue spanning from O Street to Nudd Avenue will be closed for signs, pavement markings and traffic channelization devices to be installed. Once this work is completed, traffic will be shifted to the right and the left lane will be closed for sign changes to transform Ashworth Ave into a two-way roadway. NHDOT will also be installing changeable message signs and barrels to warn motorist of the new traffic pattern. Motorists are encouraged to exercise caution as they adjust to changes in the road configuration.

In conjunction with the NHDOT Ashworth Avenue traffic reconfiguration work, the Town of Hampton will be installing barrier to close off access to Ocean Blvd, Route 1A from the Letter Streets. When all work is complete the closure of Ocean Blvd with associated detour will be implemented.

Questions regarding Town of Hampton operations may be directed to Deputy Chief David Hobbs of Hampton Police Department.

Questions regarding NH Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, Division of NH State Parks parking operations may be directed to Brent Wucher, Public Information Officer.

Office of Public Affairs

Acting Secretary Wolf’s Statement on Non-Essential Travel

As I have repeatedly stated – border security is homeland security. Our efforts over the last several months to limit non-essential travel have been successful and now is not the time to change course. The President has made it clear that we must continue to keep legitimate, commercial trade flowing while limiting those seeking to enter our country for non-essential purposes. Non-essential travel will not be permitted until this administration is convinced that doing so is safe and secure.

We have been in contact with our Canadian and Mexican counterparts and they also agree that extending these restrictions is prudent at this time. We appreciate our partnership with Mexico and Canada in ensuring that North America is working together to combat the ongoing global pandemic.

Governor's Office For Emergency Relief and Recovery & Department of Revenue Administration

During Governor Sununu’s press conference Friday, he announced how he intends to spend much of the $1.25 billion CARES Act dollars.

One of the biggest expenditures from the fund is what he is calling the “Main Street Relief Fund”. The Governor has authorized the allocation and expenditure of an initial $400 million in emergency funding from the CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Fund (“flex funds”) to provide emergency financial relief to New Hampshire small for-profit businesses due to the economic disruption caused by COVID-19.

This prequalifying request for information will begin May 15th and end in two weeks later on May 29th. This is a very short deadline so that they can ensure relief is quickly provided to mitigate any further damage to New Hampshire small businesses, keeping doors open and preserving jobs. The fund will be administered by the Department of Revenue. In order to be eligible, a business must have its principal place of business in New Hampshire and must have generated less than $20 million in revenue during the 2019 tax year.

Every eligible New Hampshire small business desiring to obtain relief must submit the prequalification form with all required information by May 29, 2020, this is a mandatory. https://new-hampshire.secure.force.com/support/GOV_GOFERR_Business_Survey

CONCORD, N.H. – The National Weather Service in Gray, ME has issued the following information regarding an enhanced severe weather threat in southern New Hampshire from approximately 3:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.M. today.

Scattered thunderstorms will impact the New England with a few strong to severe storms containing damaging winds, large hail, brief torrential rain and a low risk for an isolated tornado. Most, if not all, thunderstorms will dissipate after 10:00 P.M.

“Thunderstorms can be destructive and extremely dangerous weather emergencies,” said Jennifer Harper, Director of the NH Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. “Thunderstorms often bring high winds, heavy rains and dangerous lightning. Help ensure you and your family’s safety by being prepared.”

Harper asked that everyone check on friends and neighbors when safe to do so and made the following safety recommendations:

· Signup for NH Alerts, the State’s emergency notification system to receive location-specific safety information. Also, download the app.

· Monitor National Weather Service radio or broadcast weather reports to keep track of changing conditions.

· If you encounter a downed power line, stay away and call 9-1-1.

· Use flashlights, rather than candles, for emergency lighting.

· Never run a generator inside a building or in an enclosed space.

DHHS will be offering testing for anyone that calls the COVID-19 Office requesting a test. If someone desires a test, regardless of symptomology, or if they believe they have been exposed to COVID-19, they may now be tested using a standing order. DHHS will be proactively contacting businesses and long-term care facilities to see if they would like a clinic at their facilities and will continue with the fixed locations as well. The fixed locations are in Claremont, Lancaster, Plymouth, Tamworth, and Rochester.

DHHS has updated the script with 211. They will no longer be screening requests for testing. Anyone who calls them inquiring about testing will be instructed to call (603) 271-5980 to connect with a testing clinic. DHHS will also be listing LHC as a testing option for individuals.



In coordination with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Red Cross is seeking people who are fully recovered from the new coronavirus to sign up to donate plasma to help current COVID-19 patients. People who have fully recovered from COVID-19 have antibodies in their plasma that can attack the virus. This convalescent plasma is being evaluated as a treatment for patients with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections, or those judged by a healthcare provider to be at high risk of progression to severe or life-threatening disease.

To qualify to donate:

Individuals must have a prior, verified diagnosis of COVID-19, but are now symptom- free and fully recovered from COVID-19. Individuals must be at least 17 years old and weigh 110 lbs. Additional weight requirements apply for donors age 18 or younger. Donors must be in good health - generally feeling well, even if they have a chronic condition.
