On May 24, 2021, Maine’s public health officials withdrew most of their pandemic guidelines, deferring to the U.S. CDC recommendations. The downward trend of infections was only in the double digits, representing the lowest single-day totals since October 2020. The new guidance from the CDC includes suggestions rather than requirements. These eliminated restrictions including masking and physical distancing in public for fully vaccinated people, and only an honor system for those who have not been vaccinated. It is still recommended for those who have not been vaccinated to don masks in public. As of now, masking is only required indoors in schools and daycare centers, and when using public transportation. Therefore, business and activities across the state of Maine are beginning to return to normal!
