• Keeping Bar Harbor Safe

  • Our local businesses are working to ensure a safe experience for guests, residents, employees, and all who enjoy Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and Mount Desert Island.

  • We are all required to wear a face covering in public spaces, per an executive order from Governor Janet T. Mills. This may be different than in your home state but we ask that you respect our community by wearing a face covering where physical distancing is not possible, including on busy streets. 

  • The business community here in Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island has been hard at work to ensure we are doing business safely in this new COVID-19 world. You can be confident that our businesses will:

    • Comply with the standards set by the State of Maine to operate and receive guests

    • Require employees to practice good hand hygiene and wear face coverings

    • Cleaning, sanitizing, & disinfecting in accordance with CDC requirements

    • Offer social distancing opportunities wherever possible

    • Provide hand sanitizing stations at all business locations and various public locations

    Operating different types of businesses will require different measures to ensure guest safety. To see more of what our individual business types are doing to keep you safe, click below to see the guidelines our member businesses have agreed to follow locally.
