To all year-round and seasonal residents of Wolfeboro, join our community-wide effort to flatten the COVID-19 curve and preserve our healthcare system. We want our healthcare workers to be protected and we all need to do our part.

Travel restrictions keep us all safe by reducing the spread of COVID-19 infections. This pandemic requires shared sacrifice at both the local and national level to flatten the curve. The Town of Wolfeboro is committed to caring for all its residents by reducing the community spread of this disease through social distancing. We believe that social distancing is critical to protecting our healthcare system and the medical personnel that risk their lives to care for us.

Limiting inter-state travel is an essential component of social distancing. Wolfeboro values our blended community of seasonal and year-long residents; however, currently we are requesting that all seasonal residents postpone arrival in Wolfeboro until public health guidelines support safe travel.

All residents please practice:

  • Social Distancing - stay 6 feet away from other individuals
  • Schedule no gathering of 10 or more
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay at home if you are sick
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough, or sneeze or inside your elbow
  • Wear a facemask if you are sick
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily

Seasonal Residents:
The Town of Wolfeboro strongly encourages you to comply with Governor Sununu’s recommended 14-day self-quarantine upon arrival in Wolfeboro.
