Safe Travel in Maine
Maine lodgings, campgrounds, restaurants, shops, museums and other attractions, have implemented recommendations from the state CDC of best practices for safely operating and protecting guests and residents during COVID-19.
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 follow these safety measures as you travel throughout Maine:
- Bring a face covering for venturing out to public places such as restaurants, retail shops, and other public places where you may not be able to maintain 6-feet physical distancing.
- 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.
