In our increasingly connected world, reliable, affordable high-speed internet is essential. Yet, in Maine, an estimated 85,000 households have no access. The coronavirus pandemic has made internet access even more critical because almost overnight, our world went virtual: COVID-19 forced Mainers to transition to new online ways of life—businesses have taken their sales online, and students have adjusted to remote learning. For some, these changes were easy and seamless, but among those 85,000 households many students lost their only internet access when the public libraries closed, small businesses struggled to maintain an online presence, and older residents lost an important way to connect with their caregivers and medical providers.

As COVID-19 restrictions ease in Maine, nursing homes and other long-term care facilities have resumed in-person visits for families. Visits won’t be the same as before the pandemic, at least until the threat of coronavirus has passed. There may be limits on when, where and for how long you can see loved ones, and distancing rules will likely be in place.
This live Q&A event will address some of the most frequently asked questions we’ve received from members and users over the course of the Coronavirus pandemic. Get the latest information on how to stay safe, protect loved ones and access health resources as hospital and nursing home visitation bans and physical distancing measures are lifted.
Scammers are using heightened fear and anxiety due to the coronavirus and the recent social unrest to target unsuspecting individuals—stealing money or sensitive personal information. You can protect yourself and your loved ones if you know what scams you should be aware of.
