Press Release

Today, Congressman Chris Pappas (NH-01) released the following statement after New Hampshire reached 500 COVID-19 deaths:

“New Hampshire families are experiencing heartbreaking loss from this pandemic, and nothing can make up for the loss of loved ones taken by this terrible disease,” said Congressman Chris Pappas. “I join the people of New Hampshire in mourning the 500 Granite Staters who have died from COVID-19. These individuals leave behind family and friends whose grief and pain is profound.”

“It didn’t have to be this way, and it does not have to continue this way. America has seen dark times before, and we have met those moments by coming together with common purpose to solve our challenges. Continued division will only lead to continued loss, and we’ve had enough of that. We must work together in a bipartisan fashion to provide relief to the American people to stop the loss of life, save our small businesses and economy, support American workers, and get us back on our feet. This must be the number one priority for leaders in Washington, and as Congress returns to session this week I am committed to continuing the fight to get New Hampshire the help we need.”
