For many, the current restrictions on day to day life imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic have reached a point where it feels like wartime: limited supplies, staying sheltered, loss of income and ability to carry on with normal behavior. We talk with our state leaders about how public safety and emergency management are addressing this crisis situation in Maine.
