CONCORD: Weddings, museums and art galleries, and summer camps all moved a step closer to being allowed back into the fabric of New Hampshire life, but the guidelines still face scrutiny from state health officials and the governor.

The decision to put the guidelines approved on Tuesday up for review by the state was made by an Economic Reopening Task Force.

The task force also recommended the beginning of amateur sports activities, but only skills oriented. No team competition would be allowed, with all drills and training occurring while practicing social distancing.

The task force also recommended acupuncturists be allowed to practice under recommended practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, state DHHS officials announced 69 new positive test results for COVID-19, with 15 new cases requiring hospitalization.

Strafford County saw four more cases.

DHHS also announced 10 additional deaths related to COVID-19, 60 or older and residing in H Hillsborough or Rockingham county.
