The great state of Maine has just created a new plan called Moving Maine Forward. The plan, according to Visit Maine is to establish “a clear timeframe to increase capacity limits for tourism. Effective immediately, residents of New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island may travel to Maine without providing a negative COVID-19 test result or quarantining. Compliance options for visitors from all other states have also been updated to include those who have completed a full COVID-19 vaccination or have had and recovered from COVID-19 at least 90 days prior to visiting.

Beginning May 1, 2021, Maine’s COVID-19 travel policy will automatically exempt all states, unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC. If one or more states experiences a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, the Maine CDC will apply its test or quarantine requirements to travelers to and from that state.”

The Moving Maine Forward plan has also set some other target dates. There is a planned reopening date of March 26 for indoor service at bars, for example. For indoor gatherings, the percentage of capacity will increase to 50% starting March 26 and to 75% starting May 24. For outdoor gatherings, the percentage of capacity will increase to 75% starting March 26 and 100% starting May 24.

Go to Visit Maine for inspired travel ideas and to Moving Maine Forward for more details on the reopening plan.

My sister Georgette, aka Georgie Jet, went on one of the only cruises to take place post-pandemic last year and it was a six-day sailing trip in Maine on the Schooner Stephen Taber. She highly recommends it so read all about it.
