Hello Wiscasset Area Chamber of Commerce Members –
It’s that time of year again! Wiscasset Holiday Marketfest is almost upon us. We would like to invite you to get involved (and have some fun while you’re at it) by decorating a wreath for the holidays. Decorated wreaths will be displayed in Wiscasset Village during the Marketfest and be donated to Toys for Tots after the weekend is over.
How does it work? 
 
  • The first 10 Chamber Members to respond will be supplied with a 12″ wreath on November 30th – December 1st
  • Decorate away! You will have a couple of days to decorate your wreath in whichever way you choose. We encourage you to have fun with it and make it your own!
  • Return your wreath to us by Thursday, December 3rd and it will be displayed in the village during Marketfest, December 4th through 6th.
Marketfest shoppers will have an opportunity to see your beautifully decorated wreaths downtown over the course of the weekend. Wreaths will be donated to Toys for Tots families after Marketfest.
If you are interested in participating please return the following information ASAP to Chelsea Taylor: ctaylor@wiscassetrec.com . Once we have ten responses from businesses we will follow up with more information.

Good morning! With rising COVID-19 case counts, Governor Mills just released a new Executive Order expanding the requirement that citizens wear facial coverings in all public indoor AND outdoor spaces.
The Executive Order reads:
“Public settings” defined.
The term “public settings” is to be broadly construed and includes:
a. Indoor spaces that are accessible to the public, including but not limited to restaurants, grocery stores, retail stores, pharmacies, health care facilities, social clubs, auditoriums, theaters, stadiums, arenas, concert halls, convention centers, meeting halls, gymnasiums, rinks, fitness centers, houses of worship, transportation centers, indoor parking garages as well as other public accommodations;
b. Outdoor spaces including but not limited to playgrounds, parking lots, sidewalks, athletic and sports venues, and other areas such as lines for takeout service where the public typically gathers in a smaller area;
c. Public transportation such as a taxi, Uber, Lyft, ride-sharing or similar service; ferry, bus, or train; and any semi-enclosed transit stop or waiting area;
d. Portions of municipal, county, state, and private buildings and grounds that are typically accessible to the public, including parking lots, walkways, lobbies, waiting areas, elevators, service desks, and related hallways.
For the purpose of this section, government buildings and grounds include those privately owned and leased for government use; and
e. Other locations that the Commissioner of the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) and the Commissioner of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) identify as presenting a risk of transmission of the virus pursuant to Section III, below.
For retail, the big change is that enforcement of the facial covering requirement and the posting of signage is expanded to retailers of all sizes. Previous Executive Orders have limited the enforcement requirement to retailers of 50,000 square feet or larger.
We have immediate questions on the enforceability requirement on businesses for outside areas like parking lots and walkways. We are working to clarify those questions as soon as possible.
