New Hampshire Won’t Shut Down Churches In Future Pandemics

August 19, 2021

In the future, churches won’t have to shut down amid public health emergencies in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, a Republican, signed a bill (H.542) into law last week that will prevent state and local governments from prohibiting in-person church services in the future.

Supporters of the bill were largely Republicans while opponents were largely Democrats.

“If Home Depot was considered to be an essential service, I think a church, and someone’s ability to go to worship, should also be an essential service,” state Senator Sharon Carson (,R-Londonderry) recently said, according to The Center Square.

That makes New Hampshire the first New England state to pass such a bill.
