Traveler Guidelines

Face Coverings: As of July 28, 2021, Maine will follow the U.S. CDC’s updated face-covering guidance that recommends all people, regardless of vaccination status, wear face coverings in indoor, public settings in areas with “substantial” or “high” levels of community transmission. For more information please check Face covering FAQs.

Domestic Traveler Policies: Under the Moving Maine Forward plan, Maine has shifted its COVID-19 travel policy as of May 1, 2021 to automatically exempt all states from the requirement to test or quarantine, unless a state is otherwise determined by the Maine CDC as being high risk. If one or more states see a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to travelers to and from that state. The Maine CDC will publicly announce any such states when they are identified.

International Traveler Policies: Travelers from other countries who are eligible to travel to the United States under national guidelines and who have been fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine but should get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel. Those who are not fully vaccinated and who arrive in Maine within 7 days of entering the U.S. must quarantine for 7 days from arrival in the U.S. AND get a COVID-19 molecular or antigen test 3-5 days after arrival in the U.S.

Please remember to continue to follow these safety measures as you travel throughout Maine:

  • While the State of Maine does not require masks for individuals who are fully vaccinated, individual businesses may implement their own rules regarding mask wearing. Be sure to bring a face covering for venturing out to public places where they may be required.
  • Wash and sanitize your hands regularly.
  • Avoid unnecessary contact with people outside of your travel party.
  • If you are feeling sick or experiencing any symptoms, contact a healthcare professional immediately.
