AUGUSTA, Maine — Governor Janet Mills announced her administration’s plan to gradually and safely restart Maine’s economy on Tuesday. The statewide COVID-19, coronavirus stay-at-home order is extended to May 31.
The stages focus not on essential versus non-essential designations like those used to originally limit business operations and activities, but on the ability of a business to operate or for an activity to occur in a manner that protects public health and safety. As the administration gradually eases restrictions on some businesses and activities, it also implements protective protocols, along with broader additional health and safety measures, to protect Maine people.
