CONCORD, N.H. — Gov. Chris Sununu on Saturday issued an order prohibiting reusable shopping bags at stores in the state, saying that they pose a risk of spreading the coronavirus.
The emergency order applies to grocery stores, supermarkets, convenience stores and other retail establishments.
“Our grocery store workers are on the front lines of COVID-19, working around the clock to keep New Hampshire families fed,” Sununu said in a statement. “With identified community transmission, it is important that shoppers keep their reusable bags at home given the potential risk to baggers, grocers and customers. This Emergency Order directs all grocers and retail stores in the state to temporarily transition to only use new paper or plastic grocery bags provided by stores as soon as feasibly possible.”
