Dr. Nirav Shah on COVID-19 outbreak at Freeport Group Home

About This Project

42 more cases of Covid-19 just since Sunday in Maine, putting the new statewide total at 275 cases, and after earlier reporting a virus outbreak at Ocean View, the retirement and assisted living community in Falmouth, there is word of yet another outbreak in what the Center for Disease Control refers to as a “congregate setting”–a group home in Freeport–where there are three cases.

Dr. Nirav Shah, Maine’s Center for Disease Control director, talks here about the particular threat of COVID-19 in congregate settings.
