Know Before You Go

Know Before You Go

Beginning July 1, visitors planning on vacationing in Maine need to receive a negative COVID-19 test no later than 72 hours prior to arrival to forgo the 14-day quarantine.  Maine is strongly urging visitors to “Know Before You Go,” meaning visitors should get tested and receive their test results in their home state before traveling to Maine, which will allow you to take appropriate action depending on the result. Individuals may be tested upon arrival in Maine as well, but they must quarantine while awaiting the results.  (Maine, New Hampshire & Vermont residents are exempt)


Once arriving at your lodging facility you will be asked to sign a “Certificate of Compliance” indicating either that you have received a negative COVID-19 test result or you have already quarantined in Maine for 14 days. (The lodging facility will not be asking to view test results, however, visitors may be asked by officials to furnish proof of the negative test result upon request)

In addition, in order to keep everyone safe – several areas within the state will offer visitors and residents “symptom checking stations” to ensure that everyone traveling about the state remains healthy. Read the More from the Governor's Office
