EASTPORT – The state’s most eastern island is asking anyone who arrives from out-of-state to voluntarily quarantine.
City leaders in Eastport say summer residents are coming back early. In order to ensure everyone remains safe, they are asking new arrivals to take the precaution.
“If you are coming to Eastport, and with so many summer residents now coming early as a safe haven, we are asking that you self-quarantine for 14 days,” said city manager Thomas Hoskins. “And we are just following the CDC guidelines.”
Hoskins said Eastport is a very welcoming community and taking the precaution is key to protecting residents and visitors alike.
Governor Janet Mills also has asked all visitors to the state to self-quarantine.
