Effective March 5: Travel from Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island are exempted from Maine’s test or quarantine requirement, joining Vermont and New Hampshire. People who have either had COVID-19 in the previous 90 days, or are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, regardless of state of origin, are now exempted from Maine’s test or quarantine requirement. Federal requirements related to international travel, however, remain in effect.
Effective May 1: Shift Maine’s COVID-19 travel policy to automatically exempt all states, unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC. 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.
Non-exempt guests from all other states will be asked to sign a Certificate of Compliance at check-in indicating they are in compliance with ONE of the following:
• They have received a negative antigen test or molecular result within 72 hours of arrival. We do NOT need to the see test per HIPPA, it is the honor system. Governor Mills has said she will have testing sites available in Maine for travelers who need one. The closest testing to date is in York – it’s drive through testing for $25 at York Walk-in center – appointments needed and more information can be found at https://www.yorkhospital.com/covid-19-testing-info/
• They will quarantine in Maine during their stay, up to 10 days (You do not need to stay the full 10 days. You can still go to the beach and do all outdoor activities)
• They have already completed a 10 day quarantine in Maine.
• They had a positive PCR test taken within the last 3 months and already completed their isolation.
It is our intent to reopen April 8, 2021 to guests in accordance with state and local regulations. In the meantime, if you feel you cannot keep your reservation due to personal reasons or cannot meet the requirement, please reply back to your confirmation and request a cancellation.
Wells Beach is open to all activities. Our outdoor season pool will be opened as normally scheduled. Restaurants are now open to indoor and outdoor dining, and most all are offering takeout. Masks are required in the state of Maine.
Stay well and we will provide updates here as we receive them.
