Senator Hassan Statement on New Hampshire’s 500th COVID-19 Death

WASHINGTON – Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement on New Hampshire’s 500th COVID-19 death:

 

“My heart goes out to the families and loved ones of each of the five hundred Granite Staters who have been taken from us by this devastating pandemic. As cases continue to surge in New Hampshire and across the country, our health care providers and communities need additional relief now to help save lives.

 

“I urge Senator McConnell and members of both parties to come together across party lines, as we did earlier this year, to swiftly deliver additional relief. We need more resources for hospitals, nursing homes, and schools. We must provide more direct assistance to individuals and small businesses to help get our economy back on track. We also need additional support for state and local governments, such as Strafford County, whose Sheriff, David DuBois, discussed with me today how he had to lay off 10 workers and fears more layoffs may be necessary. Our communities cannot wait, and I will keep doing everything I can to push for additional relief now.”
