Governor Mills Announces New Rural Re-Opening Plan

Gov. Janet Mills on Friday announced that 12 Maine counties – all but Cumberland, York, Androscoggin and Penobscot – will see relaxed coronavirus restrictions, starting as early as Monday, May 11. The new regulations will permit retail stores (May 11) and restaurants in 12 of Maine’s 16 counties to open (May 18), so long as they follow certain health and safety precautions, such as providing for safe social distancing, limiting sit-down service and closing salad bars and buffets. Municipalities in these 12 counties have the right to adopt stricter public health measures if they so choose, the governor said.
