Maine Gov. Janet Mills has convened a team that's tasked with coordinating the state's response to the potential spread of coronavirus.
The response team led by Maine CDC Director Dr. Nirav Shah briefed the governor and her cabinet on Monday on efforts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to protect public health.
The meeting took place on the same day the first case was confirmed in neighboring New Hampshire. In Maine, one individual who met federal requirements to be tested for the virus tested negative.
