Wedding, jail outbreak in Maine lead to school precautions



ALFRED, Maine (AP) — Maine education officials say an outbreak of the coronavirus at a jail that is linked to another at a far-away wedding poses enough of a risk that schools in the southern part of the state should take more precautions. The administration of Gov. Janet Mills said Friday that York County schools have been designated as facing higher risk than the rest of the state in the wake of the outbreaks. York is Maine’s southernmost county and is home to an outbreak of more than 80 cases at an Alfred jail. The cases are tied to a larger outbreak stemming from a wedding in the northern part of the state.
