Covid-19 Response Plan

Updated 24 September 2020

The sun is shining, the air is getting warmer, the market is open and the waves are certainly still crashing! If you are dreaming of a vacation, or staycation, at Higgins Beach this summer, we will be here for you! We are closely monitoring the news from Governor Mills as it slowly becomes available, including how the 14-day quarantine requirement will impact out of state travelers this summer. We look forward to welcoming back our guests and snowbirds when we can.

Please know that we are adapting our business and taking the necessary precautions to keep our guests and our team as safe as possible. We are committed to providing the highest standards for you, and we will be making changes to our usual operations to ensure your safety and comfort, such as:

  • Providing touchless check-in and check-out.
  • Removing additional bedding such as covers and blankets & asking guests to bring their own.
  • Extending time between turnovers to allow for enhanced cleaning.
  • Requiring all mattresses & pillows have protective encasements.
  • Sanitizing covers, encasements and all hard surfaces between guests.
  • Offering service provider contacts for guest convenience to allow for minimal contact within the community such as grocery delivery & linen services.

We look forward to welcoming you to Higgins Beach safely and soon! Help us follow the recommended CDC & State of Maine guidelines to keep ourselves, our families and our fellow travelers safe and healthy. We are committed to comply with the Maine COVID-19 Prevention Checklist.
