In this Aug. 11, 2020, file photo, women wear masks to help prevent the spread of coronavirus at the end of a beach day in Ogunquit, Maine.

There are now five counties where the Maine CDC recommends everyone wear masks indoors: Lincoln, Penobscot, Somerset, Waldo, and York.

The recommendation follows U.S. CDC guidance issued a week ago that people vaccinated against COVID-19 resume wearing masks indoors in areas with high case counts.
