[ARCHIVED] Coronavirus Information

Wash Hands

The City of Portland is actively engaged and monitoring guidance from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Maine CDC regarding Coronavirus COVID-19 preparations and precautions. 

The City’s emergency management team is prepared to respond should anyone be diagnosed in Portland, and the City released guidance information to its employees given their frequent interactions with the public. 

Maine CDC continues comprehensive planning to ensure Maine is ready should the virus affect people here and encourages Maine people to protect themselves by taking the same preventive measures that help to avoid catching a cold. These measures include:

  • Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then throwing the tissue in the trash.

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water and use an alcohol-based sanitizer in between washings.

  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick and avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Staying home if you are sick.

  • Taking care of your health overall by staying current on your vaccinations, including the flu vaccine, eating well, getting a good night’s sleep, and exercising.
