As a way to encourage all Ogunquit-area businesses to operate safely, and encourage guests and residents to act responsibly, the Ogunquit Chamber created the "Ogunquit Together" initiative in spring, 2020. The initiative welcomes our visitors and reminds everyone that it is in behaving in a manner that is courteous and respectful to others that we can enjoy our amazing natural resources and inviting business community together this summer.

What are the current COVID-19 guidelines in Ogunquit?
The State of Maine has removed all physical distancing requirements, both indoors and outdoors, and eliminated COVID-19 indoor and outdoor capacity limits. Masks are not required outdoors. Masks are not required indoors for those who have been fully vaccinated, but are recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated. However, businesses may adopt policies for their employees or guests that either require vaccination or proof of vaccination in order to avoid wearing a mask.
Beaches are open, with no social distancing requirements. Parking lots are fully open, and reservations are not required. Dogs are not permitted on the beach from April 1-September 8. Click here for rates for beach parking lots.
Marginal Way is open for your strolling pleasure. Also, please carry in & carry out! Dogs are not permitted on the Marginal Way from April 1-September 30.
Restaurants are open for outdoor and indoor dining, using state-approved safety protocols; most are continuing to offer take-out, curbside and/or delivery.
Retail stores, museums and art galleries are open, also using state-approved safety protocols.
Live music and entertainment is back, both outdoors and indoors. Now that it's summer, you'll find local musicians at many of our restaurants, and performance venues including Jonathan's, Front Porch Piano Bar and Maine Street. Ogunquit Playhouse is offering full-scale live theater in its new outdoor Leary Pavilion. For details, check out This Week in Ogunquit.
Lodging properties are open for guests from anywhere.
Beginning May 1, 2021, Maine’s COVID-19 travel policy automatically exempted all states (i.e., you can travel to and from Maine without testing or quarantining), unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC. If one or more states experiences a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, the Maine CDC will apply its test or quarantine requirements to travelers to and from that state.
