COVID-19 Info

Notice from the Select Board regarding face coverings:

On December 11th Governor Mills issued a new Executive Order strengthening the mandate for the use of face coverings in order to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus. 

It is now mandatory to wear face coverings in all public areas including outdoor spaces.  

Therefore you must wear an appropriate face covering in order to use the Transfer Station. The Select Board is asking for your cooperation in this matter for your safety, the safety of the Transfer Station personnel, and all residents who need to drop off their trash & recyclables. Persons who do not follow the mandate will not be allowed continued access to Town facilities while the order is in effect.

Please Read Below for updated information on Available Vaccines!

Anyone can call 211 to find a site near them.

The phone number for phone preregistration is 877-780-7545.

Callers will be asked their zip code, and date of birth. They will get a confirmation call days later that they are registered and will get called to set up an appointment.

Beginning tomorrow, people 60+ can register. Walgreens and Hannaford's are also taking appointments. Walmart too. Veterans can call Togus for their appointments.

 

They are working on a plan to get to people who cannot get out with the new J and J vaccine which is more portable, making home visits with public health nurses where needed.

Here are some things we strongly encourage you to do at home:

Social Distancing: Follow guidance to avoid large group gatherings (less than 10 people), limit physical contact such as handshakes and, if you’re an employer, consider instituting work from home or paid time off options.

 

Avoid Travel: Postpone any unnecessary travel.

 

Keep Healthy: Practice the same preventive measures you would to prevent catching a cold: wash your hands often, cover coughs & sneezes, stay home if you are sick. Keep your kids home if they are sick.

 

Call Your Doctor: If you, or your family, are exhibiting any flu symptoms - or believe you may have been exposed to the coronavirus - call your medical provider BEFORE going to their office.

 

Check on Family & Neighbors: If you know someone who is elderly, has a preexisting health condition, or simply lives alone, regularly check to make sure that they are doing alright.

 

Ask for Assistance if Needed: Contact our Emergency Management Director, John York, at 382-3077 or 692-7828 if you, or someone you know, needs any help due to the virus.

 

“Time and again, Maine people have risen to the challenges put in front of us. We have conquered them because we are a strong, resilient people – borne of the western foothills; the northern potato fields; the bold, rocky coasts; and the tall, pine forests. We have been lifted up by the courage, conviction and resilience that comes from loving a place and its people. Together, we will get through this.” Governor Janet Mills 3/15/2020
