Maine will have two options for visitors from other states: 1) getting a recent negative COVID-19 test; or 2) doing a 14-day self-quarantine upon arrival in Maine. Visitors from New Hampshire and Vermont are exempt from these requirements starting June 12.
Effective July 1, people who are not Maine, New Hampshire or Vermont residents and are visiting Maine lodging will be asked to sign a Certificate of Compliance indicating that they have received a negative COVID-19 test result, that they will quarantine in Maine for 14 days, or that they have already completed their quarantine in Maine.
If a Maine resident visits New Hampshire or Vermont, they are not required to quarantine upon returning to Maine, effective immediately. However, if they visit elsewhere, the requirement that they quarantine for 14 days remains in place, or they may use a negative test as an alternative.
Seasonal homeowners, workers traveling to Maine, and other visitors may also utilize a recent negative COVID-19 test as an alternative to the required 14-day quarantine in Maine effective immediately.
