Maine must act immediately to slow COVID-19 cases or hospitals will be overrun, and the point of no return is tomorrow, says Mainers for Accountable Leadership (MFAL), citing data put forward by the coalition COVID Act Now. In 48 hours MFAL collected more than 2,600 signatures from Mainers urging Governor Mills to issue a shelter-in-place order immediately. They presented the petition, which is still growing in signatures, to Governor Mills and Maine’s Congressional delegation this morning and are awaiting an answer.
