The Governor’s office has released new, less-restrictive guidance for out-of-state visitors with regard to COVID-19 restrictions:

“As of May 1, 2021, Maine no longer requires proof of a negative test or quarantine for travelers to the state. 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.”  This means that for now, we will no longer be requiring a written attestation upon check-in.  We and all of the shops and restaurants here in Bar Harbor look forward the return of a semblance of normacy following a long hiatus and await your visit!
