This week’s question: During the Spring of 2020, Maine was in the midst of COVID hysteria. Schools, churches, libraries, restaurants, dentist offices, and small businesses were ordered closed. Parks, beaches, playgrounds and golf courses were closed. Mainers were ordered to isolate in their homes. When Gov. Mills finally allowed golf courses to reopen, she imposed special rules.
