ABSTRACT

Restarting Maine's Economy   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "After months of tireless efforts and decisive action by people across Maine, our state appears to be flattening the curve against COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. However, we should not expect life to return to normal. Instead, we have to embrace a new normal - a different way of doing business, shopping, traveling and recreating that keeps us all safe. To that end, the Mills Administration has prepared a plan to gradually and safely restart Maine's economy. The plan establishes four gradual stages of reopening, the first of which begins on May 1st. Designed with input from public health and industry experts, this staged approach will allow Maine businesses to safely open when the time is right, and stay open by following reasonable, practical guidelines to ensure the safety of employees and customers. Public health is the foremost factor guiding this process. As the Administration gradually eases restrictions on some businesses and activities, it also implements protective protocols, along with broader additional health and safety measures, to protect Maine people."
