Mask mandate and all physical distancing requirements lifted as of Monday, May 24, 2021.
Governor Janet Mills announced on May 14, 2021that the State of Maine will adopt the U.S. CDC guidelines 
which allows fully vaccinated Americans not to wear face coverings indoors, effective May 24, 2021.

Maine also lifted the physical distancing requirement at indoor public settings where people are eating or drinking and therefore would be removing their face covering – such as indoor restaurants, bars, dining areas in camps or in congregate living facilities, and break rooms.

Consistent with the U.S. CDC’s guidelines, it is recommended that people in Maine who are not fully vaccinated wear face coverings in indoor public settings. The U.S. CDC requires people to wear masks on all planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation.
