2 of Maine’s hardest hit counties to get testing help


LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — A medical center that serves two of the hardest-hit counties in Maine is slated to receive a boost from the federal government to offer more coronavirus testing. Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King said Monday that Community Clinical Services in Lewiston has been awarded more than $320,000 to expand testing and training capacities. The center serves Androscoggin and Cumberland counties, which are two of the three hardest-hit counties in the state of Maine in terms of caseload. The senators say the money has been awarded via the Paycheck Protection Program & Health Care Enhancement Act.
