As we begin the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic in New Hampshire, scientists continue to learn more about the virus, and the race to vaccinate people as quickly as possible continues. We talk Monday about the new mask recommendations from the CDC, vaccine development and efficacy, and how to safely transition to in-person learning, work, and life. 

Check out all of NHPR's coronavirus coverage, including FAQs, data, and information about vaccinations.
