Here’s the COVID-19 Case Count for NH, ME, MA on April 30, 2020
Here are today's COVID-19 numbers, Thursday, April 30, 2020 for NH, Maine and Mass:
According to NH.Gov, 2,054
In Maine, 1,056
and in Massachusetts, 60,265
Although Maine's numbers are small in comparison to some other states, including the two others here, yesterday Governor Janet Mills said that restaurants and hotels can begin to reopen on June 1, however, the order for anyone out of state to self-quarantine for 14 days stays in effect through July, according to a report from News Center Maine. So, anyone traveling to Maine for say.... vacation this Summer, will have to self-quarantine for 14 days. So, if you have only 2 weeks off and you want to spend it in Maine, make sure you get a really nice hotel room.
I'm not sure how the Maine economy can survive with such a mandate. Maine depends on money from out of state tourists. The Old Port in Portland is jam packed with shops that are meant for them. In the Summer, cruise ships dock at the pier and out come thousands of dollars. I am worried, but hopeful that they will survive. Maybe I'll do my part and shop Mexicali Blues online and buy myself a new Komono. I do what I can.
