Maine hotels reopen to out-of-staters, but will they come?

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine innkeepers and hoteliers are opening their doors to out-of-state tourists on Friday who’ve either tested negative for the coronavirus or are willing to quarantine for 14 days. But many say visitors are canceling over the measures. A panel that’s tasked with assisting with the recovery of the state’s tourism and hospitality industry is recommending easing the testing and quarantine requirements. A draft report by the Hospitality, Tourism and Retail subcommittee of Gov. Janet Mills’ Economic Recovery Committee says the economic consequences of testing and quarantines are “massive for these sectors.” The Maine Principals’ Association, meanwhile, has released new rules for high school sports.
