Update: November 18, 2020

 

Maine’s tourism industry is facing 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.
