BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Pooled testing for the coronavirus in Maine’s schools will come to an end in May.

The Mills administration announced the conclusion on Wednesday

The administration says the highly-contagious nature of the BA.2 variant makes pooled testing less effective in limiting its spread.

They also say free at-home tests are now much more available for students and staff.

The final week for schools to conduct pooled testing will be May 9-13.
