Health Officer announcement

I have taken on the position of Health Officer for the Town of New Boston along with my Town Administrator and Welfare responsibilities. I have been the Health Officer in previous communities in which I have worked so I am very familiar with this role and have worked very closely the folks at the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

I was nominated by the Select Board and appointed by the State. Under the revised Statute (RSA 128) the Select Board and the Health Officer make up the Board of Health for the Town and we must jointly write an annual report to DHHS on the health conditions in New Boston.

I shall be posting health alerts as they become available. The most recent updates have been regarding COVID-19 and the Monkeypox virus.

Should anyone need to reach out to me as respects any issues or concerns I encourage you to so by phone or email.

Respectfully,

Paul Branscombe
