ME residents state visit exemptions are the same from last week. However, if they visit elsewhere: 14-day quarantine or a negative test are the requirement. Seasonal homeowners, workers traveling to Maine, and other visitors may also utilize a recent negative COVID-19 test as an alternative to the required 14-day quarantine in Maine effective immediately.
