For the latest information on coronavirus in Maine, visit the Maine CDC website.
If you think you might have coronavirus, both Lincoln Health and the Boothbay Region Health Center ask that you call first before coming in.
From the Maine CDC:
“”The risk to the public remains low, but we must prepare for the potential spread of coronavirus,” said Nirav D. Shah, Director of the Maine CDC. “As we focus on the health of the public, we urge Maine people to take care of their personal health. Eat well, get plenty of sleep, and practice good hygiene. Healthy habits save lives.”
The best thing that Maine people can do to protect their health is to take the same preventive measures that help to avoid catching a cold: Wash your hands often. Cover coughs and sneezes. Stay home if you are sick.”
