COVID-19 Update

CLAREMONT STRONG

CLAREMONT, NH – The Department of Public Works would like to remind everyone that wipes and paper towels should not be flushed. DPW is experiencing issues at the sewer treatment plant with items that should be put in the trash. Putting the wrong things down the drain can damage the sewer system, cause sewer backups in your home, and sewer releases to the environment. Anyone who uses the city sewer system should be responsible for what they flush or pour down drains. For further information, please read

A business resource page has been created by the NH Department of Business & Economic Affairs. We encourage all of our businesses to check https://www.nheconomy.com/covid19 regularly, as updates continue.

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation announced that they would be offering grants to nonprofits in NH, MA, ME and CT. More information can be found here.

As numbers continue to rise in NH, we want to stress social distancing. Social distancing means remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible. We ask that all members of the community practice social distancing whether out for a walk or in the grocery store.

The City has created a COVID-19 page at http://www.claremontnh.com/residents/COVID-19.aspx. We will be listing cancellations of events as they come in as well as state and federal government information.
