Maine's new approach to tourism

Maine have developed a new strategy to make tourism "safe" following the coronavirus pandemic.

The Keep Maine Healthy strategy plan aims to help bring tourism back to the US state and to avoid the 14 day quarantine, with the state ramping up testing.

They also want to increase symptom checking across the state whilst the local government also want to help places "develop and implement their own COVID-19 prevention and protection".

Maine's Department of Economic & Community Development Commissioner, Heather Johnson, said: "We have come up with a plan that offers a unique solution to protect the health of Maine people and visitors, while allowing opportunities for safe tourism and supporting businesses. The 'Keep Maine Healthy' plan is indicative of the core values of the Maine brand - resiliency, reliance on ingenuity, and the pristineness of our natural resources. Some of the very reasons visitors travel here."
