COVID-19

As of June 11, 2021, Governor Mills announced the end of Maine’s State of Civil Emergency at the end of June 2021. The State’s last remaining mask requirement, which at the time only applied to indoor pre-k to 12 schools and childcare settings, ended as of June 30, 2021.

Whereas prior to June 30, we based our protocols upon compliance with the guidelines set forth by the CDC and Department of Education, the CDC (as of July 28th) states: Given new evidence on the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant, CDC has updated the guidance for fully vaccinated people. CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status. Children should return to full-time in-person learning in the fall with layered prevention strategies in place.

Because our goal is to continue to minimize the risk of possible transmission of COVID-19 between people, we will establish our own guidelines to combat the spread of the disease consistent with the CDC guidance. The guidelines are established in this document:
