“Public health and economic health go hand-in-hand – and this plan aims to achieve both,” Mills said in a release
AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine Gov. Janet Mills on Friday announced loosened coronavirus-related travel restrictions and a reopening plan to boost tourism ahead of the spring and summer.
During the press conference Friday, Mills said many economists have said, “If you want to restore the economy, deal with the pandemic first because you can’t have a healthy economy without healthy people.”
“I believe we’re at last on our way to doing just that,” she said.
The plan, called “Moving Maine Forward,” outlines a timeframe to increase capacity limits and revise travel restrictions.
