As of Monday, May 24, Maine will adopt the US CDC new guidelines which allows fully vaccinated people NOT to wear face coverings indoors. The press release says: Businesses and other organizations may, consistent with legal obligations, adopt policies for their employees or clients that either require vaccination or require proof of vaccination in order to avoid wearing a mask.
This means that individual businesses can still require customers and/or employees to mask and distance if they so choose. We’ve seen announcements on the news that some businesses will require this.
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.
State officials gave little indication last Friday as to how masking for unvaccinated people would be enforced. Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Jeanne Lambrew said there would likely be changes to Governor Mills previous executive order on face coverings this week and DHHS will certainly be working with businesses so that they can understand what their options are.
This is a HUGE step forward for all of us!
