Travel Guidelines

As it gets closer to April, many of us have already started to plan for April vacation. This is a reminder to please be cautious. If you are planning on traveling to a non-exempt state (any state other than New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, or Rhode Island), please follow the guidance from the Maine Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

“It is mandated that all out-of-state travelers coming into Maine, as well as Maine residents returning to Maine, complete a 10-day quarantine upon arrival. Travelers should monitor for signs and symptoms for an additional 4 days. This means:

  • You need to arrive with enough food for 10 days or arrange to have food delivered to you. You cannot go out to grocery stores.
  • Stay at home. You cannot go out to public places.
  • Avoid contact with others, especially those who are at high risk of severe COVID-19 illness.

The State will allow adults who have a negative COVID-19 antigen or molecular (PCR, NAAT, or isothermal) test collected no more than 72 hours before arriving in Maine to forgo the 10-day quarantine upon arrival in Maine.

Individuals who have completed a COVID-19 vaccination series and are 14 days beyond the completion of the series are exempt from the testing and the 10-day quarantine requirement above, regardless of their state of origin.

At the Boothbay Region High School, we strongly encourage anyone who travels to a non-exempt state to receive a PCR test at the Respiratory Care Clinic (207-563-4353) 5-7 days after returning to Maine. You must quarantine until you have received a negative test result. Once you have been notified of the test result, please have it faxed to the BRHS office at 633-7129. 

For more information, please reach out to Nurse Taylor, 633-2421 or, or Nurse Kate, 633-9814 or, for guidance.
