The state is responding to a high COVID-19 mortality rate in nursing homes by licensing temporary health workers and increasing testing, Gov. Chris Sununu and the state’s top health official said Wednesday.

The actions come as the number of New Hampshire deaths linked to the pandemic rose by eight to 150. Seven of the eight recent deaths were in long-term care, and all were adults 60 or older, according to Health and Human Services Commissioner Lori Shibinette.
