STATE OF MAINE TRAVEL GUIDELINES

Maine’s COVID-19 travel policy welcomes all to Maine.

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. Federal requirements related to international travel remain in effect. 

Effective May 24: All capacity limits for indoor gatherings and outdoor gatherings are lifted.

Physical distancing requirements for outdoor settings are eliminated.

Maine will also lift the physical distancing requirements at indoor public settings where people are eating or drinking and therefore would be removing their face covering – such as indoor restaurants, bars, dining areas in camps or in congregate living facilities, and break rooms.
