Information for Visitors

Updated May 14, 2020

Thank you for your interest in visiting Biddeford this summer! 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the State of Maine has instituted policies for out-of-state visitors that may affect your visit to our community, and all other communities in Maine, this summer. Please keep the following information in mind as you finalize travel plans for Summer 2020.

Lodging

Please note that non-Maine residents may not stay in lodging (such as home rentals, hotels, campgrounds, summer camps, or RV parks) in Maine until the state enters Stage 3 of the plan to restart the economy. Stage 3 is expected to begin in July 2020. 

As a coastal community, Biddeford has many home rentals available during the summer. If you do not live in Maine, you may not plan to stay in a home rental until after July 1.

Quarantine Requirement

By executive order of Maine’s Governor, any person entering or returning to Maine must self-quarantine for 14 days, including during Stage 3. This means:

  • You may only be around those you traveled with for 14 days once you enter the state. This means you may not visit with friends or family who you did not travel with.
  • You may not visit a grocery store or any other store during the quarantine period.
  • You may go for a walk, but you must wear a face mask and stay six feet apart or more from others. Individuals in quarantine are strongly urged to avoid going for walks in heavily-traveled areas. Be prepared to keep your distance from others during chance encounters.

The quarantine applies for those who own property in the state as well as those who are staying in Maine lodging.
