Starting May 24th, capacity limits lifted & physical distancing requirements eased
On May 13, 2021, the State of Maine updated its public health protocols under the Moving Maine Forward Plan.
Effective May 24th, Maine will:
- lift all capacity limits and requirements to physically distance in all public outdoor settings.
- lift all capacity limits in public indoor venues. Physical distancing requirements are also eliminated, except in 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.
Face coverings must still be worn in public indoor settings. The Maine Department of Health and Human Services and Maine Department of Education will separately update school-based protocols.
