Maine CDC: ‘No one should be waiting to prepare’

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

As of Monday, no cases of coronavirus have been detected within Washington County, a fact which should not stop people from preparing themselves, said Maine Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Executive Director Dr. Nirav Shah.

"[A lack of cases] could provide folks with a false sense of security," he said.

Shah warned the CDC fully expects to see new cases develop in counties that have none today, and to see increasing rates of infection in counties with known cases.
