STATEWIDE –– Gov. Janet Mills on Wednesday again extended the state of civil emergency for Maine.
The governor’s decision to extend the emergency through March 18 is in line with nearly every other state with ongoing emergency declarations.
A state of civil emergency allows Maine to deploy all available tools to respond to and contain COVID-19.
This is Mills’ 12th extension of the state of civil emergency.
Under Maine law, proclamations of civil emergencies may be issued in 30-day increments.
