(AP) - Maine has received more than $5.5 million from the federal government to reimburse the cost of personal protective equipment such as surgical masks for front-line responders, the state’s two U.S. senators said.

The grants will also over the costs of disposable non-sterile isolation gowns and disposable isolation suits, Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins and independent U.S. Sen. Angus King said.

The funding arrives via the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The senators said it’s “imperative that health care professionals across Maine are properly equipped to treat individuals who contract the virus and prevent further transmission.”
