Tourism Updates

Update: February 11, 2021

 

Maine’s tourism industry continues to face an unprecedented challenge as travel is being significantly impacted by the COVID-19 virus. While it is impossible to speculate on the overall impact COVID-19 will have on the travel industry, the Maine Office of Tourism (MOT) is providing periodic updates on travel and tourism in Maine.

Keep Maine Healthy is a multilayered approach to protecting Maine residents and visitors and supporting Maine businesses by reducing COVID-19 risks associated with travel. The plan works to provide one of the safest places for people to travel.

The VisitMaine.com Travel Protocols page provides: information regarding quarantine and  testing requirements and how to get tested in Maine; the Certificate of Compliance and online Pledge to Protect ME tool; and Keep Maine Healthy FAQs.
