Rise in COVID-19 cases in Hanover, after Dartmouth students return

The city of Hanover has the highest number of active COVID-19 cases in New Hampshire, with 197 people confirmed to have the virus. The city is home to Dartmouth College, and Hanover officials said they believe the increase in cases is due in part to an increase in cases at the college. Officials said they also believe the actual number of cases from the college and state dashboards is underreported, thanks to the increasing use of home tests and this week’s completion of Dartmouth’s mandatory test. Hanover Mayor Julia Griffin said the increase in cases became apparent. when graduate students from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business returned from the spring break. “Which tells us the Tuck students were out traveling the world, came back, and some were positive,” Griffin said. “And then we saw a significant second increase in cases among undergraduate students as the undergraduate students returned from the spring break two weeks ago now.” Griffin said the increase was predictable. She said she would like to see more people wear masks, but government officials and Dartmouth College do not want to see mask mandates return.
