In a public statement, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Humans Services wrote it, “has conducted contact investigations on all cases associated with these potential community exposures and is notifying known close contacts directly. However, DHHS is making this public notification because there may be additional individuals at the location during those days and times who were exposed to the coronavirus.”

Health officials are encouraging anyone who visited these restaurants in the time frame listed to monitor their symptoms and get tested if they feel sick.

“I’m furious,” said Darlene Damour, a Portsmouth resident. “I think they should be shut down, and their workers should be quarantined for at least two weeks. [COVID-19] is never going away as long as we keep seeing this. I want to live!”

“I think with the rise of COVID-19 right now – and it really hasn’t penetrated New Hampshire or Maine yet – you really want to err on the side of caution,” added Charles Collier, who lives nearby.

Managers from The Goat in Portsmouth told WBZ they are following all safety protocols associated with COVID-19.

There have been 10,112 cases of Covid-19 in New Hampshire and 471 deaths.
