UPON ARRIVAL – Your lodging facility will ask you 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)
WHERE TO GET A TEST – The Mills Administration announced today that seven health care organizations will collectively launch nearly 22 “swab and send” COVID-19 test collection sites that will send samples to the Maine State Lab for testing, strengthening access to safe and accessible testing for residents, tourists, seasonal workers, and other visitors to Maine.
SWAB AND SEND SITES – The drive-through, drive up, and mobile specimen collection sites, under agreements with the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), will offer specimen collection free of charge to any individuals who believe they may have COVID-19 or could have been exposed to the virus, with or without symptoms, as defined under the DHHS Standing Order.
A list of all testing sites in Maine can also be found at Get-Tested-COVID19.org
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 remain healthy.
We aim to make this the safest place to visit for your summer vacation!
Our numbers have been low, working together we can keep them that way and everyone can have a safe Maine summer.
