Local Coronavirus COVID-19 Resource Center: Alerts, Closings, Cancellations, Solutions


    Since the first testing for COVID-19 in Maine, information and important notices from community and state officials, business owners and educators have flowed to our inboxes at a rapid pace. 

    So, the Pilot established a resource page, a collection center for all the alerts and vital information our readers need to know.

    Innovative solutions, before long, were brought to our attention, easing life for everyone as we move through these unfamiliar sequestering days.

    As the state deals with a surge of new cases, and tries to figure out normalcy, we are sharing information as it rolls in.

    The latest information will appear at the top of the page, and the top of the subsections appearing within the sidebar.

    Stay healthy, keep your distance, wear a mask, and keep your chin up!

    On Friday, March 13, residents are stocking up on groceries and other items, filling the roads and parking lots.
