Update: As of last night/this morning, York and Piscataquis are

> According to the U.S. CDC, York and Piscataquis counties have "substantial" levels of community transmission at this time, which means that individuals should wear face coverings in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status. Maine's other 14 counties currently have "moderate" levels of community transmission according to the U.S. CDC and are thus not subject to the first recommendation. The U.S. CDC determines level of community transmission based on the number of cases in the last 7 days per 100,000 people and the percentage of tests in the last 7 days that have a positive result.
