The Maine Department of Economic and Community Development released checklists on Thursday, May 14 for hotels, motels and inns as well as campgrounds and RV parks for their planned re-opening on June 1.

In a press release, Gov. Janet Mills also allowed lodging providers to begin accepting future reservations for stays with an arrival date of June 1 and beyond for Maine residents and for non-residents who comply with the state’s 14-day quarantine requirement.

Mills also stated “The tourism and hospitality industries are vital pillars of Maine’s economy. Although the pandemic has altered how they can operate safely, it has in no way diminished their importance – both to our economy and to us as a state, We are acting in partnership with the industry to resume reservations while we also work together to evaluate alternatives to the 14-day quarantine, including testing and other protocols, that will allow us to protect Maine residents and tourists during the summer months.”
