According to the Maine Emergency Management Agency Facebook page, an image circulating the internet that seems to indicate an upcoming national quarantine is not true.

The image, which appears to come from the Maine Army National Guard, explains people should stock up on what they need for two weeks because, "before the end of the weekend", President Trump will call for a two week long national quarantine.  In this scenario, all businesses will be closed and the military will deployed to prevent rioting and looting.

The post does explain that you could see the national guard in the community during the crisis, but the graphic is not true.

Be safe and be kind to each other.
