Dear Winslow Park Campers,
The Governor of Maine has issued a tentative re-opening plan for state businesses. The order requires that reservations not be taken until specific guidelines are sent out by the governors office. It also virtually eliminates our ability to rent any sites to anyone from out of state until at least July and could limit bathroom facilities. These factors are making it extremely difficult to plan a specific opening date. For these reasons we are once again forced to push back taking any reservations until at least May 15th and possibly later. There is a lot of uncertainty right now and I am actively monitoring state guidelines and am in touch with town officials on a regular basis. Please check the town website and the Facebook page as I will try and post all new info as it becomes available.
Thanks and stay safe,
Here is an excerpt form the order:
Stage 2 (June): Tentatively beginning June 1st, Stage 2 contemplates revising the limitation on gatherings from less than 10 people to less than 50 people. It also calls for people who can work from home to continue to do so but allows for employees in certain fields to begin to reenter the office as needed, including State employees. It maintains the 14 day quarantine for all people entering or returning to Maine and the special precautions for older Mainers and others at risk of COVID-19. With appropriate safety precautions, Stage 2 would allow for some degree of opening with reservations, capacity limits, and other measures for:
Fitness and exercise centers and nail technicians
Retail stores for broader in-store shopping
Lodging and campgrounds for Maine residents and those who have met the 14 day quarantine requirement
Day camps for Maine children and those who have met the 14 day quarantine requirement
Coastal State parks
Stage 3 (July & August): Tentatively beginning July 1st, Stage 3 contemplates maintaining the prohibition on gatherings of more than 50 people and other Stage 1 and Stage 2 restrictions, including the 14-day quarantine on people entering Maine. With appropriate safety precautions, Stage 3 would allow for some degree of opening for:
Lodging, such as hotels, campgrounds, summer camps, or RV parks for Maine residents and visitors. The Administration is developing guidelines to assist them in safely reopening, and reservations should not be taken until those guidelines are issued.
Outdoor recreation such as charter boats and boat excursions
Personal services such as spas, tattoo and piercing parlors, and massage facilities, among others
