Updated December 2020, Mandates For Anyone Entering Maine

“The Mills Administration announced December, 4 it will extend the requirement for certain businesses statewide to close by 9:00 p.m. through Sunday, January 3, 2021. The extension, which lasts beyond New Year’s Eve, is aimed at limiting activities that lead to COVID-19 transmission, amid a sustained and dangerous increase in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and positivity rates in the State of Maine.

New Hampshire and Vermont remain the only two states exempt from the 14-day quarantine or negative test requirement for now, and Governor Mills strongly recommends that visitors from these two states and Maine people returning from them, especially during the upcoming holiday season, obtain a test in order to “Know Before You Go.”
