PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine is renewing its “Keep Maine Healthy” campaign that seeks to encourage precautions about the coronavirus pandemic.
The Maine Department of Health and Human Services launched the campaign in June. The administration of Democratic Gov. Janet Mills said Thursday it would use $100,000 in Coronavirus Relief Funds to extend the campaign into January.
The campaign uses social media, digital, television and streaming media advertising, the governor’s office said. It will remind residents of the importance of actions such as social distancing and wearing face coverings, DHHS Commissioner Jeanne Lambrew said.
The DHHS also announced that 52 more Walgreens pharmacies will begin offering free drive-through COVID-19 testing on Friday. That brings the total number to 65 in Maine.
