Governor Mills announces “Rural Reopening”

Governor Janet Mills today announced that certain businesses in 12 of Maine’s 16 counties will be allowed to open earlier than previously announced, provided they follow updated health and safety requirements. 

The four counties that are not included are York, Cumberland, Androscoggin and Penobscot, due to their residents having larger counts of COVID-19. The businesses with the ability to open early include retail stores to in-store customers (May 11), and restaurants with outdoor dining (and limited dine-in service) on May 18th.
