Maine Gov. Janet Mills has extended a state of emergency for another 30 days. Mills urged Mainers not to let “pandemic fatigue” allow them to become complacent, especially as students are returning to schools and universities across the state. The governor referred to outbreaks stemming from a wedding in the Millinocket area in saying “one little match can spark a fire that may be very difficult to put out.”
