Local Regulations


On June 8, Governor Mills released the "Keep Maine Healthy" program for reopening Maine’s economy, in particular to travelers from out of state. For a thorough explanation of the guidelines and procedures, visit the program page here.

Governor Mills had previously issued a "Stay Healthy at Home" mandate. The directive requires people living in Maine to stay at home at all times unless for an essential job or an essential personal reason, such as obtaining food, medicine, health care, or other necessary purposes.
