Good news! Each household in the U.S. can now have four free COVID-19 at-home tests shipped directly to their home at no cost! All you need to do is visit COVIDtests.gov and enter your contact information and mailing address.
The tests are rapid antigen “at-home” or “self” tests — not PCR tests which require a lab drop-off. The “at-home” or “self” tests can be taken anywhere and give results within 30 minutes.
Guard against scammers trying to steal your personal information. When ordering tests, use the official, secure government website: https://COVIDtests.gov. Watch out for phone scammers, too. If you get a phone call requesting information so that free at-home tests can be mailed to you, hang up — it’s a scam!
Remember: Medicare pays for COVID-19 tests performed by a lab, such as PCR or antigen/rapid tests, at no cost to you when the test is ordered by an authorized health care professional. Those in a Medicare Advantage Plan should check with their plan to see if their plan offers coverage and payment for at-home tests.
Saturdays from 9:30-11:30am here at the library
This is an established group that meets weekly at the library and welcomes interested newbies to come learn about the art of bookbinding.
This event is recommended for age 12 and older. Call the library for more details, 207-646-9024.
Thank you Mornings in Paris! Your February fund raising effort was greatly appreciated.

Preservation of the Old Boston Land.
Join us on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 2:30 PM for a Zoom session about an important conservation effort: preservation of the Old Boston Land.
Ogunquit and the Great Works Regional Land Trust have a one-time opportunity on November 3rd to protect the Old Boston Land on North Village Road. At 157 acres this is the largest remaining undeveloped property in the town with over 2000 feet of frontage on the Ogunquit River. Its woodlands, wetlands, historic foundations and cemetery would provide for outdoor recreation and protect water quality. It connects with 6000 acres of conservation lands stretching to Mt Agamenticus. Tin Smith, Great Works Regional Land Trust Board member, will talk about this exciting project and answer questions.
We hope to see you there on Zoom!
