Maine Aggregate Association has been monitoring the impact of COVID-19 on our industry. We will continue to provide updates below:
What should mine operators and miners do?
Avoid close contact: Put distance between yourself and other people (about 6 feet). This includes not crowding personnel carriers, hoists and elevators, or other means of transportation at the mine.
Clean and disinfect: Wipe down equipment and other frequently touched surfaces.
Wash hands: If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc.
Stay at home if you are sick.
