MEDWAY – State police are enforcing Gov. Janet Mills’ stay-at-home order. Just ask a Winn couple.
Robert Goodwin said he and his wife, Sharon Goodwin, got the OK from the Maine Department of Transportation to set up a free lunch station at the Medway rest stop.
“Something warm on a cold day. Yeah, we just want to do a little bit to do our part,” Sharon Goodwin said. “Like I said, I don’t know how long we can do this. It’s up to DOT. The stay-at-home may be mandated even for us.”
The Goodwins were aware the possibility existed they might be asked to go home.
“You know, we all have to follow Governor Mills’ mandated requirements. So, I mean, we’ll be out here as long as we can,” Robert Goodwin said.
The couple had only been set up for a short time last Friday when a state trooper pulled off the highway and rolled into the rest stop. He politely told them they were violating the stay-at-home order.
“I mean there’s not much else we can do. You know, the police are the police. They have their orders and what are you gonna do,” Robert Goodwin said.
