ROCKLAND, Maine (WABI) - The Maine Department of Health and Human Services office in Rockland will be closed on Monday after an employee has tested positive for COVID-19.

DHHS was told of the positive result Sunday and notified employees at the Rockland office.

The employee last worked out of the Rockland office nearly 2 weeks ago.
