COVID testing updates

It's a snowy Friday and 2022 has brought us omicron and increasing positivity rate (18.4%) and high hospitalizations and deaths.
Omicron is now thought to be the dominant variant in current infections.

In response, the State just opened up a new COVID testing site in Augusta at the Armory on Western Avenue.  The Armory is on Western Avenue and the location has been added at the COVID-19 Testing in Maine website<https://www.maine.gov/covid19/testing>.
Augusta area libraries may download and post this informational flyer<https://www.maine.gov/msl/libs/services/documents/Armory_Covid.pdf> about the Armory site.

I have added information about testing sites, vaccination sites, new isolation and quarantine recommendations, and home COVID testing to the Coronavirus webpage<https://www.maine.gov/msl/libs/services/Coronavirus.htm>.  Links below.
Testing Locations:
