Maine’s Civil State of Emergency set to end on June 30th
Maine (WABI) - Governor Mills has announced that after 15 months, the State of Civil Emergency will come to an end on June 30th.
The current Civil Emergency was set to end on June 13th but Mills decided to extend it until the end of the month to ensure an orderly transition out of the emergency.
Different state departments will now identify any policies that may need temporary extensions beyond June 30th including child care providers and home and community based services related to the pandemic.
The state’s last face covering requirement for kids in school and child care settings will also be lifted on June 30th.
The state is still recommending that unvaccinated Mainers and those not yet eligible for the vaccine wear a mask indoors.
