This week, the number of COVID-19 cases in New Hampshire since last March reached 100,000. That grim milestone comes amid a small increase in cases related to the more contagious Delta variant, though all available evidence suggests that the COVID-19 vaccines are performing well against the variants.

These effects also extend to N.H.’s economy. As expanded child tax credits hit the bank accounts of New Hampshire families last week, the state is also touting its summer employment stipend program.
