KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Dozens of Portland, Maine Restaurants & Bars Require Proof of Vaccination
On January 3rd Portland City Council voted unanimously to bring back mask mandates for the city. Everyone over the age of two is required to mask up in public places unless the business they are entering requires proof of vaccination. For restaurants and bars, guests may only remove their masks while seated and eating and drinking.
There are many restaurants, cafes, and bars opting to require proof of vaccination rather than deal with the hassle of requiring masks.
Thankfully Portland Food Map is keeping an up-to-date list of the individual establishments making this choice.
