Here in New England, we are recovering faster than other parts of the country from the pandemic. All but one of New England’s 6 states achieved a score that placed them in the top 10 according to a WalletHub study.

  • # 2 – Maine
  • # 5 – New Hampshire
  • # 7 – Vermont
  • # 8 – Massachusetts
  • # 9 – Connecticut

Rhode Island missed it, coming in at 14th place. However, they are in the top 5 of the “highest share of the fully immunized population”, all of which are New England states!

  • Vermont
  • Connecticut
  • Massachusetts
  • Maine
  • Rhode Island

The lowest hospitalization rate puts Vermont in the lead, followed by Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine, in that order, so it looks like we are recovering well!
