The Health Services Division fosters a culture of food safety and community resilience through ongoing public outreach and education, and routine inspections of a variety of different types of establishments. We license special events such as races, farmers markets, fairs, and holiday parades as well as respond to community concerns.
Restaurants with an existing liquor license who wish to serve alcohol in a COVID-19 approved outdoor seating as of May 18th 2020 may do so by sending a letter of intent to the NH State Liquor Commission. The email address is reopen@Liquor.nh.gov.
Please be aware that this form may change as we refine our outdoor seating guidance. If you utilize this form for submission, you will not be required to resubmit again in the event that new forms are generated. Covid-19 Outdoor Seating submissions are valid for the duration of Executive Order 2020-40 and are subject to change at the discretion of the Governor’s Office.
