BANGOR – Senator Angus King reacted to Gov. Janet Mills’ stay-at-home order to reduce the spread of coronavirus Tuesday evening.
Maine’s Independent senator wrote a message on Twitter, thanking the governor for taking the action “to keep Maine people safe.”
“I know that staying at home can feel like you’re doing nothing, but it’s the most selfless, effective, and patriotic thing you can do right now,” King added.
A spokesperson for Sen. King’s office said the senator returned to Maine from Washington D.C. on Friday, after voting in support of a historic economic relief bill.
While the spokesperson said King is showing no symptoms of COVID-19, King is playing it safe, staying in a hotel and working from there.
King is still conducting town halls via teleconference and is in contact with other senators and staff, the spokesperson said.
