The state’s COVID-19 prevention checklists were recently updated for large gatherings and ticketed events; organized racing events; town meetings; and transportation as part of the Moving Maine Forward Plan. A new checklist was created with guidelines for private events, including guidance for those in the wedding and catering industries.

The updates maintain public health and safety guidelines, consolidate and streamline language in previous checklists, and reflect the latest science to help mitigate the spread of the virus. State officials will continue to review and revise guidelines to reflect progress on vaccinations and align with Maine’s strategy to combat COVID-19.

COVID-19 remains a serious public health threat and people should continue to heed all health and safety protocols, including wearing masks, practicing physical distancing, and avoiding large gatherings.
