Information and Updates About the Coronavirus Pandemic

Covid-19 Updates

Many local businesses have developed ways to adapt so that residents and visitors can feel safe while businesses remain open. Governor Mills has issued a “Stay Healthy at Home” Executive Order that requires Maine residents to stay at home except for essential jobs or essential activities. The Governor amends, rescinds, or renews orders as events develop in Maine, including the timeline to ease restrictions as events improve.

These links will provide guidelines and answers to questions about the Governor’s stay at home order and about Covid-19. It is our desire to provide goods and services to our residents and visitors in ways that are safe and compliant with directives from our local, state, and federal officials.
