AUGUSTA — State leaders are working on new rules regarding visitors to Maine who are currently required to self-quarantine for 14 days.
Staff from the Maine Department of Economic Community Development and the governor’s office are working with business owners and industry officials on a draft plan they call KeepMEHealthy. They hope to finalize the plan in the coming days.
“In the framework as it is outlined today, visitors that would want to come for overnight could have a COVID test and, as long as they test negative, would be able to have that as an alternative to quarantining,” DECD Commissioner Heather Johnson said Thursday morning.
The CEO of the Maine Tourism Association and executive director of the Greater Bangor Convention & Visitors Bureau both said they appreciated the administration’s efforts to find an alternative to the quarantine but they still have concerns about how the planned program would run and be enforced.
