December 4th - Maine CDC provided an updated policy on the required length of quarantine for an individual determined to be a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case. Previously established as a 14-day period, this has been shortened to a 10-day period. The policy remains that a negative test result cannot shorten a quarantine period for close contacts.
Please note that those individuals who had been identified as close contacts prior to December 4, 2020, at 3:30 pm will be required to complete a 14-day quarantine period. Those who are identified after 3:30 on December 4, 2020, will follow the new policy of 10 days.
