Dear Community and Guests,
- There will be no capacity limits for indoor or outdoor businesses
- There will be no physical distancing requirements for businesses
- There will be no mask requirement (exceptions include schools, public transportation, certain health care settings)
- Masks are strongly encouraged for those who are not fully vaccinated but there is no state requirement that people wear them
- Businesses are not required to enforce mask wearing for unvaccinated guests/customers
- Businesses can choose to require masks for employees and/or guests/customers if they wish but it is not a state requirement
- Businesses are not required to check vaccination status for guests/customers
- Lodging businesses can choose to ask about guests vaccination status, can choose to require masks for unvaccinated people, and (possibly) only allow vaccinated guests but if a business chooses to do the latter, it should consult with an attorney to stay on the right side of health privacy issues.
- People do not have to be a Maine resident to get vaccinated in Maine so out-of-state workers can be vaccinated once they arrive in Maine
Effective May 1 the plan:
Maine’s COVID-19 travel policy requirements from an “all states included, unless exempt” model to an “all states exempt, unless included” model. This means that travelers from all states are automatically exempt unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC.
Under this new model, the Maine CDC will be charged with identifying states that have a high prevalence of highly contagious COVID-19 variants. If one or more states see a spike in variant cases, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to travelers to and from that state. This more targeted approach will remain in effect through the summer.
These restrictions are fluid and may change – we encourage you to call us or follow the Maine State website – linked below.
