On May 1, 2020, Governor Janet Mills implemented stage one of Maine's Covid-19 pandemic response, which included requiring people to wear cloth face coverings in all public locations where six feet of physical distancing was difficult to maintain.
Masks have been a part of our lives for over a year. Collecting contemporary items—such as this face mask—are critical to helping future citizens understand historic events, such as the Covid-19 Pandemic of 2020-2021.
