As part of its investigation, Maine CDC is communicating with Big Moose Inn about the nature of the event and adherence to State requirements.
Those who attend social gatherings should follow physical distancing guidelines including wearing cloth face coverings when not eating and maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet between individuals and 6 feet between household groups as much as possible.
- The number of individuals who can gather in a shared space must not exceed the limit established by the Governor's Executive Order, currently set at 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors and fewer if the space cannot accommodate 5 people per 1,000 feet.
- Further breaking a gathering up into smaller groups is encouraged to reduce potential exposure.
- If a space cannot accommodate the gathering limit without complying with the 6-foot distancing requirement, occupancy must be limited to allow for such compliance.
- Face coverings should be worn in public settings when physical distancing is not possible.
