AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - Governor Mills has extended the Coronavirus State of Civil Emergency for another 30 days.

It’s the 12th time she’s done so since the pandemic began.

The state of civil emergency now runs through March 18th.

The Governor says the state has turned a corner from recent surges in cases, but the new COVID-19 variant is a cause for concern.

Under Maine law, civil states of emergency may only be issued in 30 day increments.
