LATEST UPDATE – March 26, 2020:
UPDATE – Governor Sununu’s Stay-at-Home Order
In light of Governor Sununu’s “stay at home” order this afternoon, I wanted to send a quick reminder your way tonight. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, please remember that The Moore Center is deemed a critical safety net/Essential Service for the citizens of our state.
For that reason, The Moore Center will remain open and operational throughout the COVID-19 pandemic emergency. And as you know, it takes so many of us to keep the The Moore Center operational.
Last week we made many decisions about who were essential staff and looked closely at who could work from home, who could mostly work from home and who would need to stay fully engaged in programs. The Governor’s announcement today gives us a chance to take another look at the decisions made last week. We are asking Directors to review these decisions and see if any modifications are needed.
Our clients need us more than ever before and our ability to be accessible and to lead with kindness and compassion will demonstrate more than ever before the vital role The Moore Center plays in our community and state. We also want and need to be ready and able to work with our community partners in service to our clients and families, and the greater community too.
In order to identify yourself as an essential worker at this time, please be sure that you keep your Moore Center ID Badge with you at all times when you are working for The Moore Center. We believe this will be sufficient, but have additional ideas should more sophisticated ID’s be required as this continues to unfold.
Thank you so much, and know that every day I become more and more impressed with our ability to help each other and work together under pressure. I’ve also enjoyed hearing from so many of you sharing with me how you and your families are getting through these challenging days. If you have any questions about this reminder, please forward them to to your Director or VP.
Please stay safe and well!
Paul S. Boynton
President and Chief Executive Officer

Moore Center Coronavirus Statement 3/11/2020
There is a new hotline you can call in NH for your questions about COVID-19. You can now call 211 if you have questions or concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak in NH.
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, but only several types are known to commonly cause infections in people, with these common human coronaviruses usually causing mild to moderate respiratory illness (like the common cold). Stay informed on the status of the Coronavirus in New Hampshire by following the updates from the NH Department of Health and Human Services.
The Moore Center is following this closely, in partnership with the New Hampshire Department of Health. Should more action be necessary, we will keep you up-to-date via this website and direct communication.
