**MaineDOT would like to get your feedback on the issues and priorities on which to focus over the next several years.  This is your opportunity to tell us what you think is important.   We have developed a survey that examines different aspects of Active Transportation and we hope that you’ll take just a few moments to complete the survey available through the link below.

We seek a dynamic response from across the state with a close examination of bicycle, pedestrian, and transit connectivity issues.  We anticipate this survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.**

The City of Calais has entered into an agreement with Curative Labs to provide COVID Testing at the St. Croix #1 Fire House located at 9 Church St. 

*** Please note that testing is no longer done at the Rec Center – Curative now operates out of the old fire hall next to the City Building ***

Curative offers PCR COVID testing 5 days a week, Monday-Friday, from 7 am to 12 pm at the St. Croix #1 Fire House, located beside the City Building.  Curative Labs advertise a 24–48-hour test result time from when their lab receives the test.  The public is encouraged to pre-register for appointments using the link provided below, however, walk-ins will not be denied a COVID test.
