As of March 5, 2021

Updated policies expected May 1, 2021

Generally, visitors to or from other states must get a recent negative COVID-19 test or maintain compliance with a 10-day quarantine upon arrival in Maine. As of March 5, 2021, exemptions from testing or quarantine are available for:

  • Residents of New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island or Massachusetts 

  • Individuals that have had COVID-19 in the previous 90 days, or are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


Under the Moving Maine Forward plan, Maine will shift its COVID-19 travel policy by May 1, 2021 to automatically exempt all states, unless a state is otherwise determined by the Maine CDC as being high risk. If one or more states see a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to travelers to and from that state. The Maine CDC will publicly announce any such states when they are identified. 


See all State of Maine COVID-19 policies at www.maine.gov/covid19.


When visiting any of the lands or gardens of the Preserve, please:

  • Always carry a facial covering and be prepared to wear one when physical distancing cannot be maintained.

  • Stay at least six feet apart from other visitors and staff.

  • Step off trails and paths to let others pass.
