As COVID-19 Cases Increase, Town Manager Stresses Continued Safety Practices

Updated: November 10, 2020

Per Govenor Janet T. Mills November 5, 2020 Executive Order, face masks must be worn in public settings at all times regardless of how far apart one is from other people.

The Office of Governor Janet T. Mills released a press statement informing constituents that a Proclamation to Renew the State of Civil Emergency by thirty days has been issued beginning today, October 29, 2020 through Friday, November 27.  This extension comes as result of COVID-19 cases increasing within the state of Maine and across the country.

Cape Elizabeth is also experiencing an increase.  Since Governor Mills’ last update on October 6, Cape Elizabeth has gone up in confirmed COVID-19 cases from 89 to 100.  Town Manager Matt Sturgis encourages everyone to remain vigilant by continuing to follow the safety protocols proven to be effective and essential in fighting the Coronavirus.
