Look, we all want life to return to normal as soon as it is safe to do so. Our hearts break to see closed storefronts and people struggling to make ends meet because of this crisis. Each day people call me and tell me their story and urge me to keep people safe while also doing what we can to protect the businesses and the lives and livelihoods of working men and women who are the heart and soul of our state. At the same time, they and we know that reopening too soon and too aggressively could cause a secondary surge in COVID 19 cases, risking the lives of Maine people, overwhelming our healthcare system and further destabilizing the economy. Nobody wants that. That’s the truth. And I’m not going to sugarcoat it.
The Governor of Maine broadcasts a weekly radio address from the capital in Augusta to the people of Maine each week, highlighting current issues, new policy ideas, and important updates for Mainers across the state.
