AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - The color-coded system for in-person learning will be updated as needed over the course of the summer.

The Department of Education made the announcement Friday.

All counties remain green.

Green suggests the county has a relatively low risk of covid-19 and that schools may consider in-person learning.

The Maine Department of Education says all counties have a covid-19 positivity rate below five percent, and the rate of new cases for school staff and students has fallen by nearly one-quarter since the last update two weeks ago.
