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.
