I know that Maine requirements for quarantine have caused a lot of consternation but speaking as a Mainer it is good policy. It appears that CV will be with us all for a lot longer than we would hope so we have to err on protectiveness. If you dont think so just look at the data for North Carolina, Florida, Texas and other states. So much for the virus disappearing with warm weather.
But there is hope: See the emboldened text below and link to the latest Maine CDC guidance.
Here is a link to the latest advisories related to travel into Maine. https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/infectious-disease/epi/airborne/coronavirus.shtml#travel
What do I do if I'm traveling or returning to Maine from out of state?
It is mandated that all out-of-state travelers coming into Maine, as well as Maine residents returning to Maine, complete a 14-day quarantine upon arrival. This means:
You need to arrive with enough food for 14 days or arrange to have food delivered to you. You cannot go out to grocery stores.
Stay at home. You cannot go out to public places.
Avoid contact with others, especially those who are at high risk of severe COVID-19 illness.
The State will allow adults who obtain and receive a negative COVID-19 test ideally within the past 72 hours to forgo the 14-day quarantine upon arrival in Maine. Maine is strongly urging visitors to “Know Before You Go,” meaning they should get tested and receive their test results in their home state before traveling to Maine, which will allow them to take appropriate action depending on the result. Individuals may be tested upon arrival in Maine as well, but they must quarantine while awaiting the results.
Additionally, the State will exempt residents of New Hampshire and Vermont from the testing and 14-day quarantine requirement altogether because, when adjusted for population, the prevalence of active cases of COVID-19 in these states is similar to that in Maine. This exemption is effective immediately for travel and effective June 12 for stays in lodging establishments.
People who are not residents of Maine, New Hampshire or Vermont and are visiting Maine will be asked to sign a Certificate of Compliance indicating either 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. This compliance form must be provided to check-in at all Maine lodging, campgrounds, seasonal rentals, overnight camps, and other commercial lodging, such as Airbnb. Visitors may be asked to furnish proof of the negative test result upon request. It will become effective July 1 (Stage 3) when lodging establishments may begin serving residents outside of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
