Broad segments of the New Hampshire population can now get tested for the coronavirus without a referral, state officials said Wednesday as COVID-19 deaths rose to a new daily high of 19.

All of the newly announced deaths occurred among residents of nursing homes or other long-term care facilities. About 20 facilities have experienced outbreaks, and deaths of their residents account for 78% of the state’s total death count of 111. The state announced an extensive plan to expand testing at such facilities statewide, in addition to increased testing availability for the general public.
