People staying in rental lodging who are not ME, NH, or VT residents must sign a Certificate of Compliance indicating either that
  1. they have received a negative COVID-19 test result OR
  2. that they will quarantine for 14 days OR
  3. that they have already completed their quarantine in Maine. 
Certificates of Compliance are available upon registering with your rental lodging.
 
If a ME resident visits NH or VT, they are not required to quarantine upon returning to ME, effective immediately. However, if they visit elsewhere, they must quarantine for 14 days or use a negative test as an alternative.
 
Seasonal homeowners, workers traveling to the island, and other visitors may also use a recent negative COVID-19 test as an alternative to the required 14-day quarantine in Maine effective immediately.
