CLINTON, N.H. — Cherry Hill Mall is closing early Friday morning due to “significant and continuing health concerns,” according to the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services.
The Mall was scheduled to close for the first time at noon on Thursday.
“The Mall has been shut down for approximately one week due to a variety of factors,” the department said in a statement.
“There is currently no additional information available regarding a cause of the closures, however we are committed to maintaining a positive and safe environment for all visitors.”
Cherry Hill has been a major draw for tourists since it opened in 2012, with more than 1.3 million visits in 2017 alone, according to Mall spokesman Brian Eller.
According to the department, there are currently six confirmed cases of salmonella in the public health system and seven confirmed cases in the private sector.
In January, the New England Aquarium announced that the park had contracted salmonellosis, which was confirmed in more than 100 visitors.
More than 100 cases were confirmed in 2017, the aquarium said.
