"Moving Maine Forward" 

AS OF MAY 24, 2021:

Following a review by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Governor Janet Mills announced today that the State of Maine will adopt the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (U.S. CDC) new guidance which allows fully vaccinated Americans not to wear face coverings indoors, effective May 24, 2021.

Maine will also lift 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.

Domestic travel to Maine will no longer be restricted unless areas of the country are identified as having high levels of COVID virus transmission.  In such cases the Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention reserves the right to re-institute travel restrictions to and from such areas. 

Maine Windjammer Cruises will be following the guidelines set out by our governor and the U.S. CDC.  We will continue to maintain high levels of sanitation and our crew members will be fully vaccinated. 

During boarding and other times when social distancing is not possible, passengers who have not been vaccinated will be required to wear masks

We encourage all passengers to respect their own health and that of others by taking advantage of readily available vaccines.

While on our vessels, we request, that those who are unable to or have chosen not to become vaccinated, continue to practice social distancing and wear masks when that is not possible.
