Gov. Janet Mills on Monday announced an alternative to her 14-day quarantine mandate for out-of-state visitors, a decision she said is possible because of expanded testing capacity both in Maine and in the home states of many tourists. Mills said that beginning July 1 out-of-state visitors will not have to comply with the quarantine if they have tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of arriving in Maine. Visitors from nearby Vermont and New Hampshire, which both have low case counts like Maine, will be exempt entirely as of Friday, meaning they can come to the state without abiding by the quarantine and without a negative test. Places of lodging, such as hotels and campgrounds, will be asking out-of-state visitors to sign certificates indicating that they tested negative. Those certificates will be held for compliance checks but not as part of an overall database, the governor said. Asked how the new policy would be enforced, Mills said that if businesses are not asking patrons, they would be in violation of her executive order. Similarly, if out-of-state visitors refuse to sign a form indicating they have tested negative, they also would be in violation.
