Keep ME Healthy Form for Maine Visitors
To help “Keep Maine Healthy,” guests of Maine commercial lodging establishments, campgrounds, seasonal rentals, or short- term rentals are required to complete this certificate prior to their stay. Residents of Maine, and residents of states currently exempted from testing or quarantine requirements (list available at https://www.maine.gov/covid19/) do not need to fill out the Certificate of Compliance. The Maine State CDC recommends that all children older than 12 months receive a COVID- 19 test. Please note that our hotel management or staff will not ask for any proof of compliance of the quarantine requirement nor are we expected to enforce this guideline. We also will not ask for proof of a negative COVID-19 test, due to HIPAA laws.
COVID-19 testing applies only to the adults in the travel party. However, the Maine State CDC recommends that all children older than 12 months receive a COVID-19 test.
We urge visitors to “Know Before You Go.” Get a COVID-19 test and receive results in your home state before traveling. If you cannot, or choose not to get tested in your own state, you can get tested once you arrive. However, you must quarantine in Maine until you receive your test results. So, check with a Maine testing provider in advance of your visit for availability of tests and turn-around time for results. Testing options nationwide can be found at Get Tested COVID-19.
If you are tested in your home state within 72 hours of your arrival and have not received a result before your departure from home, you may come to Maine and quarantine until your result is received.
During quarantine, visitors may not interact with others outside their travel party or go into public spaces like shops and restaurants. They may go outside for recreation in uncrowded areas provided they abide by physical distancing guidelines and avoid contact with other people.
For example, if you can do the following a safe distance away from other people, you may:
- go for walks and hikes in uncrowded areas
- canoe and kayak
- bike on uncrowded trails
- swim in lakes, ponds and rivers
- take a scenic drive
- relax and take in the views
- get takeout and delivered meals
