There were 884 new cases of Covid-19 in York County as a whole in the past two weeks. This is a very big jump from the previous two-week period, which had 589 cases.

31.1% of Mainers are now fully vaccinated against the virus, and 40.22% have received the first of two doses of the vaccine.

Maine vaccine clinics paused distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine this week, after a recommendation from the US CDC. The recommendation came about after reports of an extremely rare blood clotting issue among women aged 18-48. (The Portland Press Herald reported this week that you are twice as likely to be struck by lightning as you are to get a blood clot from the J&J vaccine). The CDC is investigating to see if the women affected had preexisting medical conditions that may have contributed to the clotting.

At the City Council’s Public Safety Subcommittee meeting this week, Community Development Director Ian Houseal reported on complaints the state received about local businesses not complying with Covid health guidelines. There were several complaints about Marc Motors, which he said the state followed up on, as well as a handful about other local businesses.
