Maine jails try to stop virus; nursing home plan rejected – News –

ALFRED, Maine (AP) — Maine’s county jails are implementing stricter precautions in response to an outbreak at the York County Jail, the commissioner of the Maine Department of Corrections said Wednesday.

One of the largest outbreaks to hit the state has centered around the York County Jail in Alfred. State officials have said an employee of that jail attended a wedding in northern Maine where the virus spread and then returned to work.

A state inspection later found mask use and screening were not universal at the state’s 15 county jails. All inmates and staff members are now required to wear masks, corrections commissioner Randall Liberty said. Screening staff members for symptoms is now also universal, he said.

“They are working diligently to correct those deficiencies,” Liberty said. “We’ve had really good participation and collaboration with the sheriffs.”

The state inspection also found most jails lacked diversion plans about where

What Is a Day-of Wedding Coordinator?

A day-of wedding coordinator is a person responsible for making sure the wedding day or weekend is executed perfectly. His or her roles include overseeing vendors, managing the timeline, and overcoming any last-minute challenges that arise during the festivities.

“Intimate weddings have always been chic—even before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Joy Proctor, who designed Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s intimate wedding in the South of France. And we couldn’t agree more—small weddings, no matter how petite, are weddings nonetheless; well-deserving of attention to detail, jaw-dropping fashion moments, and a stellar guest experience.

A common misconception is that a small weddings mean less effort, curation, and elevation. Quite the contrary; a wedding is a wedding, regardless of size, scope, and location—and smaller guest counts make it possible to get even more creative.

Whether your celebration takes place in the backyard at home or far
